2013 Audio Pride Guide & Map
Accessibility Resources planning goes year round and works to ensure that the activities of Pride Toronto do not exclude any person due to unnecessary barriers. We work to facilitate the participation of persons who use wheelchairs, scooters, and other assisted devices; who are visually impaired; who are deaf and hard of hearing; who use the assistance of working animals; who require attendant care; and people with other visible or invisible disabilities
Our headquarters is a rest, social and information centre with a shaded sitting area, water and a scooter-accessible washroom. Come to HQ to access our wheelchair lending service, attendant care worker, American Sign Language (ASL) interpreting services, services for the visually impaired and access to mobility assistants. Accessibility Services Headquarters is located at the North/East corner of Maitland and Church during the street festival.
Accessibility Viewing Areas and Entertainment Stands
Accessible seating is available along the Dyke March and Pride Parade routes and at our largest entertainment stages. This seating is for people who will be unable to stand for the duration and for their partners or companions. These wheelchair- and scooter-accessible viewing stands are shaded from the sun and will have chairs, attendant care, water and accessible washrooms. The stands are non-smoking and are offered on a first come, first served basis. It is recommended that people arrive early for performances and/or to watch the Dyke March and Parade, as seating and access to the Accessibility areas may be limited.
American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreting Services
ASL interpretation is available at D/A Headquarters during regular hours of operation, roaming through the festival site, and during certain events. Please visit the D/A Headquarters for a complete list of ASL/English interpreted events.
Wheel Chair Loans
Wheelchairs are available for loan on Saturday and Sunday from 12pm - 8pm. To sign out a wheelchair, please bring a piece of photo I.D. such as an LCBO card, Driver's License or Passport. During peak hours, wheelchair loans will be limited to 2 hours at a time.
Large print maps and Pride Guides, Audiocassette and Braille Lending Services are available at the Accessibility Services Headquarters.
Shade and Water for Working Animals
Shade and water for working animals are available at the Accessibility Services Headquarters.
