Ground Floor
CSI Spadina’s ground floor is fully accessible with a lift on the south side of the building.

Guests will enter through the south laneway door, which has a lift. The laneway is located between 192 Spadina and 190 Spadina.

When you arrive in the building please contact our welcome desk (416-979-3939 ext. 1) to have a staff or DECA to provide access to the lift.

Upper Floors

The coworking space on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors are not fully accessible: they can be reached via an elevator with a door of 30” width. Functionally this means that while we are able to accommodate many accessibility devices, those using larger devices may need alternative arrangements.

We are committed to ensuring all members and their guests are able to use our services. If you have any accessibility concerns or questions please reach out the Community Manager: Stefan(at)socialinnovation.ca.
