  • we usually have a wait list, except in very limited emergency circumstances. Please also note that, because Rise is a teaching clinic, we have blackout periods in between semesters where we are unable to see clients. 
  • Rise is located beside the Broadway-City Hall Skytrain Station on the Canada Line and is within walking distance of stops for bus numbers 9, 15, 17 and 99.
  • Rise does not have any designated parking, but there is limited metered street parking nearby. If you will be driving, please leave yourself enough time to find parking in the neighborhood.  

Accessibility

Rise aims to be inclusive and accessible for our clients and visitors. The clinic has undergone a voluntary Radical Access Mapping Project (RAMP) audit to evaluate our current accessibility. To view the full audit, click the link below.
