Driving directions

CanAssist is located on UVic's campus in a building called the Centre for Athletics, Recreation and Special Abilities (CARSA), which is located at the corner of McKenzie Avenue and Gabriola Road.

If you are approaching UVic from McKenzie Avenue (heading east), you can park in two nearby places: the first is the CARSA parkade, which is accessed by turning right onto Vikes Way from McKenzie; the second is by turning right onto Gabriola Road from McKenzie and then left into parking Lot 2.

If you are taking UVic's Ring Road, turn right from the Ring onto Gabriola Road. Then turn right into Lot 2.
