St-Stephen-in-the Fields accessibility information:
The venue has a wheelchair ramp entrance and is all on one level; however, the wheelchair ramp door does not yet have a pushbutton, so someone needs to hold the door open. There is one fully barrier-free washroom.
All washrooms are gender-neutral.
