Equity and Accessibility

The Department of Recreation, Athletics & Wellness strives to create and maintain a friendly, safe and inclusive environment that welcomes our diverse community to participate in our wide variety of activities

In the RAWC, many features were designed in an effort to remove barriers to participation. For example, automatic doors, accessible washrooms, a pool lift and an elevator. Our state-of-the-art athletic facility is equipped with Upper Body Ergometers, recumbent bikes and a wide range of different resistance training equipment that can be adapted to accommodate a variety of different accessibility considerations. We have an all gender/ privacy change facility located between the female and male change rooms – with large private change cubicles, washrooms and direct access to the pool deck to accommodate the diverse needs of our patrons.
