Quebec: Disabled Needs
The crown jewel of French Canada
Quebec is a reasonably disabled-friendly province. In the major cities and towns signs mark disabled access for public toilets and subway stations with elevators, as well as disable parking. Public transportation for disabled people is possible by taking lift buses and using certain subway stations in Montreal. Pierre Elliot Trudeau International and Jean Lesage Airport are both designed for wheelchair accessibility with assistance programs for persons with disabilities as well as for others who require assistance. Note that disabled passengers travelling from the airport to Quebec City centre will need to make taxi reservations in advance. The top attractions such as the museums and Bell Centre all provide disabled facilities. Cobblestone streets, however, in Quebec City and Old Montreal can be tricky.
