Support Person and/or Service Animal
Admission is free for attendants who accompany a person with a disability. The gallery also allows admission into the building for guide or service dogs accompanying a person who requires special assistance.
When communicating with a person with a disability, the McMichael service provider will aim to do so in a manner that takes into account the needs and circumstances of the individual with the disability. Our gallery staff are given training on various disabilities and potential alternate means of communication. Where required, our staff will aim to make the original communication more accessible by adapting to the needs of the person with the disability.
If there is a way in which we can enhance our communications, please advise the respective McMichael provider directly and/or complete the Visitor Comment Card found at our Admissions desk, or via the “contact us” link below.
Disruptions in Service
If there is a disruption in facilities or services that are specifically used by persons with disabilities, a notice of the disruption will be posted in this space on our website and at Admissions Front desk entrance. The notice will state the reason for the disruption, how long it is expected to last, and what alternate facilities or services exist, if any.
Please inquire at the Admission Desk upon your arrival or call our Receptionist in advance at 905.893.1121, ext. 0 with any questions.
If you have any questions or comments, please complete a Visitor Comment Card located at the Admission Desk or contact us by email. All comments are logged and responded directly to the contact information provided.
The McMichael gallery is committed to making its website as accessible as possible for users with disabilities. Information presented on the website is available in text format on request.
We have made every effort for pages on this site to meet the W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 , level A.
All pages on this site validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional, use valid Cascading Style Sheets, level 2 (CSS2), and use structured semantic markup. i.e. h1 elements are used for main titles, h2 and h3 elements for subtitles.
Links are written to make sense out of context. Some links make use of title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target.
A consistent style of presentation on each page (including use of navigational menus, content and promotional areas) allows users to navigate the site more easily. In addition a link to skip over the navigation is available on each page to aid screen reader users.
All content images used in this site include descriptive alternative text (“alt”) attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null “alt” attributes.
This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout. The visual design and site code allows users the ability to increase (or decrease) their text size. (To increase your text size in Internet Explorer select the “View” menu, then “Text Size” and “larger” or “largest”)
If the user’s browser or user agent does not support styles sheets, the content of each page is still readable.
