Fondation Accessibilité MOBILITÉ RÉ DUITE

Wheelchair Access

The PHI Foundation is partially accessible for those with reduced mobility:


The building located at 451 Saint-Jean Street is wheelchair accessible—however the sidewalk on Saint-Jean Street is quite narrow. There is an elevator that services all four floors, and an accessible bathroom in the basement.


The main entrance of the 465 Saint-Jean Street gallery has a number of stairs leading into the main hallway. There is an accessible entrance at the back of the building, located in the parking area. Please note that there is no accessible bathroom in this building.


As additional assistance may be required, please feel free to call 514 849-3742 for more information.

Fondation Accessibilité DEAF

Individuals Who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing

We are currently developing a pilot project for individuals who are Deaf or hard of hearing and the staff will be embarking on basic American Sign Language (ASL) courses, with courses in Quebec Sign Language (LSQ) to follow. Soon, we hope to be able to offer guided visits in both ASL and LSQ with either a Deaf guide or a sign language interpreter within two weeks’ notice—stay tuned for details!


Visitors who are Deaf or hard of hearing can always call us at 514 849-3742, using the free Canada VRS service to communicate with us by video using sign language.
