We are located in Toronto, Ontario (that’s in Canada), in the Parkdale neighborhood:
Look for 1266 Queen sign, the door is on the west side of the building off Queen street. If there is an open house, or a public event, buzz our unit (#6 or #12) for access. Go up the stairs, make a right at the vending machine, left, then follow until you find us! (On the right)
Parking is available behind the building, however is first-come, first serve and is limited. Please do not double park unless you know who you are blocking. There is Green-P parking available down the street.
The HackLab strives to be accessible to as many people as possible, but we know that our physical space has constraints.
We are unfortunately not wheelchair accessible – there are a number steps leading up to the lab. As a heads-up to folks with sensory processing issues, the Tuesdays can get quite busy and noisy. 7 to 8 pm tends to be the busiest time, and earlier is usually nice and quiet. For those affected by strong chemical smells, the ventilation on our laser cutter isn’t perfect, and if it is in operation it can get stinky in the lab. The 3D printers are sometimes used as well, which can result in a variably strong burnt-plastic smell.
