  • Rented out by an organization that is left-leaning
  • parking available

CONS:

  • 10 minute bus + 5 minute walk from closest metro station
  • no Wi-Fi
  • parking virtually inexistant

description of the space

There are three floors in the building. The first, street-level floor has a large double room. The second floor has another large double room. Fortunately, the double rooms have dividers which means that we would be able to divide the rooms into four smaller rooms. The kitchen (full-fridge and stove) is located on the second floor. Tables and chairs are available on site, so they aren't an additional cost and don't require transport. There is a third, small room located in the basement. This room can only be accessed via a staircase, and as such, is not wheelchair accessible. The rooms could serve as a daycare, should we decide to provide this service. The first floor double room has two whiteboards. The ceilings are high and there are lots of windows, which means lots of natural light:) There is also a coatroom on the first floor where we would lockup any important items/provide a bag check service

accessibility

The first and second floors are wheelchair accessible and are serviced by an elevator. There is a ramp in the back/side of a building. Washrooms are located on both the first and the second floor.

Le Centre Masson is accessible via two metro stations, Joliette and Frontenac. Click the link below to see how long it takes to access the building by public transit:

location

The building is located on the corner of Masson and 3e Av (2705 Rue Masson, Montréal, QC H1Y 1W6, Canada).

The building is located on Rue Masson and is easily accessible by public transport. Because the srteet has lots of little businesses, there is a lot of pedestrian and car traffic in front of the building which would help give the event more visibility, especially if we were to get permission to hang a banner from the second floor:)

UQAM

PROS:

  • most accessible space we will find
  • direct underground connection to a wheelchair-accessible metro station
  • extremely central
  • wide-variety of food options in the area

CONS:

  • academic space
