MAWA is a ground level accessible space, with an accessible entrance and washrooms. ASL is provided upon request, with two weeks notice. Service animals are welcome; pets are not. We request that all guests refrain from wearing scented products out of respect for those with sensitivities. MAWA programming is open to participants of all genders unless otherwise noted. MAWA’s washrooms are gender neutral.

MAWA opens 30 minutes before each program is due to begin.

For other access requests, or if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, please contact the office at 204-949-9490 or email
