Accessibility Update

The Power Plant is currently upgrading the campus to be accessible and welcoming to all. Excuse our appearance as parts of the building will be under construction over the next few weeks. Starting from February 28 and until further notice, The Power Plant will reduce its opening hours and move our main entrance to the south doors facing the lake.

Access to the public bathrooms on the first floor of the building will also be temporarily unavailable. There will be two bathrooms on the second floor of the gallery, which can be reached via the stairwell and also an elevator.

The nearest wheelchair-accessible washroom on campus are situated at 207 Queens Quay West. Please see CAMPUS MAP for detailed instructions on how to find these offsite bathrooms . We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.

Service Animals

We welcome visitors with service animals to The Power Plant.

When it is not readily apparent that the animal is a service animal, staff or volunteers may ask for a document confirming the need for the service animal.

The owner of the service animal is responsible for the conduct of the service animal while on The Power Plant premises. The owner is responsible for looking after the service animal’s needs, including the cleanup and disposal of waste.

Please note: If the service animal is causing a disturbance to other visitors, the visitor and accompanying service animal may be asked to leave the area.
