Washroom Use and Design Recommendations

In the Downtown Eastside, washrooms are contested spaces that meet multiple demands. Alongside community stakeholders, we created a document that guides us as we design and monitor use of these VCH washrooms in the neighbourhood. It incorporates gender and safety issues alongside harm reduction and substance use considerations. We encourage others to adopt or adapt this document to think about their own washrooms and have created a PDF checklist to support this.
