Swimming Pool Accessibility

By request of the Post-Polio Clinic, the Polio Quebec Association put together a swimming pools directory. This directory gives information about interior swimming pool accessibility in Montreal, for people with physical disabilities (or not). Please, note that for now, almost all the swimming pools listed in this directory are located in Montreal. We invite you to share with us information about swimming pools in your region that still haven’t been listed here, all over Quebec : associationpolioquebec@bellnet.ca.
