All KPE properties have signs in place to address universal COVID-19 related information, as well as information about room occupancy, queuing and traffic flow. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with these signs when you come to our facilities – and please adhere to the guidelines outlined.

We look forward to a careful and gradual re-opening of our facilities. In doing so, we will continue to follow the guidelines for public health and safety set out by the City of Toronto and the province of Ontario, as well as the University of Toronto’s guidelines and protocols. 

Further to the University's ongoing response to COVID-19 rental of KPE operated facilities have been cancelled through to April 30th, 2021.
