Room 2002, PACI Building (Law School), Lakehead University

401 Red River Road, Thunder Bay, Ontario


Access notes

<aside> ⚠️ Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, Lakehead University has not located RiVAL in a space that is barrier-free.



There are approximately twelve steps that must be climbed to access room 2002 of the PACI building. For this reason, we often book alternative rooms at PACI which are accessible to those who cannot use stairs. If you would like to attend an event, but cannot because of the barrier the stairs represent, please contact us and we will be happy to make arrangements.

Many people in our community struggle with invisible disabilities, with learning challenges, or with forms of oppression tied to addiction and mental health. We seek, whenever possible, to make our events accessible to as many people as possible, and so we observe the following:

Scents (perfume, etc)

Many RiVAL staff and attendees of RiVAL events have serious allergies or sensitivities to strong scented products like perfume and cologne, but are also often in products including soap, shampoo, conditioner, fabric and softener. We ask those visiting RiVAL to be aware of this and avoid wearing these strong scents in our space or at our events

Transportation subsidy

RiVAL will provide two bus tickets per event to anyone who requests them to help with transportation costs. Please ask one of the organizers at the event.
