Explore accessible Canada

Disabled access, especially for those in wheelchairs, can be found in almost every public building across Canada. Most museums, tourist information centres and visitor attractions have taken steps to make access easier.

Hotels, especially those affiliated with chains, provide disabled accommodation and toilet facilities.

National and Provincial Parks offer alternative trails and sights accessible to disabled travellers. Further advice can be sought at the individual park centre.

Car parks in cities and at grocery stores offer designated spaces for disabled drivers and passengers.

Airlines, buses and trains all offer wheelchair assistance and it is advised to make extra time allowances before commencing your journey. Taking a wheelchair on the train will require advanced notice so it is recommended to call Via Rail Canada 48 hours before hand.
