Location and Parking
The Reception Hall La Plaza is located at 420 Rue Sherbrooke West. La Plaza has an underground parking garage, however there is plenty of street parking close to the venue.
Mobility and Transport
La Plaza conference halls are wheel-chair accessible. A large automatic door offers access to the building, and elevators provide access to the mezzanine level where the conference will take place. The halls are almost entirely step free and there are ramps available on request to access the one area with steps. Public transport for those with reduced mobility include the 24 Sherbrooke and the 80 Avenue du Parc buses. The métro system is not wheel-chair accessible, however there are accessibility points. Please consult the STM Accessibility Page for more information.
The conference will be presented in both English and French. The plenary sessions and keynote speakers will be open to all registered participants and conducted bilingually. However some content will be presented in one language, and so we invite participants who are uncomfortable in either language to make use of translation headsets that will be available onsite throughout the conference. Please note that workshops offered in one language will not be translated, however we have ensured that each scheduled time period offers content in both English and French. You can consult the list here: fiertemontrealpride.com We are currently making every effort to have ASL and LSQ translators on hand to aid deaf and hard of hearing participants as well, however we cannot yet confirm that the service will be available.
The two washrooms will be gender neutral for the conference, and both include accessible stalls for those with reduced mobility.
Scent Free Policy
We would like to offer to guests a scent-free space, as many folks react poorly to chemical and strong natural scents. We ask that participants respect the policy and use scented personal products with moderation for the duration of the conference.
