- Parking at the Pride Centre is limited as the Centre does not currently have reserved parking. There are three free parking spaces in the lot and there is additional paid street parking, however, we cannot guarantee parking will be available during your visit.
- Please allot extra time to find parking when you’re visiting the Centre, especially if your visit is time-sensitive.
- We apologize for the inconvenience and are working on a long-term solution.
- The Pride Centre is located one block away from the MacEwan LRT station, known officially as the Metro LRT Line.
- The Centre is located directly behind Macewan University so many major Edmonton bus routes pass by. However, most stops are one or two blocks away as there is no direct bus stop in front of the Centre. The bus routes 7, 8, 110X and 500X all have stops very near the Centre.
- We are also accessible by transit from other municipalities.
- Sherwood Park buses 401, 411 and 413 all have stops within 3 blocks of the Centre.
- St.Albert bus routes 201 and 208 also have stops within 3 blocks.
- Spruce Grove route 560 has multiple stops around Macewan.
If bus fare is a barrier for you, we offer free ETS tickets to those who need them. We also have taxi vouchers available for 2SLGBTQIA+ seniors. Please contact us for more information.
- We are currently working on creating a more accessible space, but at this time our signage is not available in braille and we do not have an ASL interpreter on site.
- While we do not have a permanent interpreter within the Centre, one of our partners The Family Centre can provide translation services. If you require interpretation services please contact us and we will do our best to arrange an interpreter for your visit. If possible, please give at least 72 hours notice as that is the time frame the Family Centre prefers.
- Our Centre is currently on the second floor of the building and accessible via a short staircase. We also have a fully wheelchair accessible elevator in the Centre to access the second floor.
- There are curb cuts and a ramp in the parking lot. However, our sidewalk is quite narrow and there is also only one curb cut and one ramp.
- The sidewalk around our building has a slight slant, and there is no way to access the side roads or vice versa without using one ramp.
- Our doors open outward.
If you require any help accessing our building during our drop-in hours, please call us. We’re always available for support.
- As the pandemic changes, our programming will also be changing. We aim to provide hybrid programming for those who cannot access our services in person, but the amount of digital programming we can offer will vary throughout the coming months.
- Please reach out if you have any questions or suggestions for us.
