Construction: South Street entrance closed

May, 25, 2016


Beginning on May 20, the IWK will start the process of replacing the pavement along the South Street face of the IWK as part of the ongoing initiatives to improve accessibility and quality throughout the Health Centre. This project is expected to take one week, depending on the weather.

For safety reasons, the South Street Entrance is closed until further notice.

Please use the Main Entrance on University Avenue instead.

Thank you for your patience.
