Villa Youville has nearly half a kilometer of corridors. You can buy a scooter or a motorized wheelchair to move from one place to another within the establishment or to do your shopping in the city. It is also a convenient way for people with reduced mobility to get to the various activities of the Villa. The apartments in the Pavillon were designed for the use of scooters as they offer a parking space with a plug to recharge the battery.
Villa Youville is a fully secured complex. All entrance and exit doors remain locked at all times except for the main entrance (15 Charrière Road) during office hours. We thus provide maximum protection to our residents while avoiding door-to-door solicitation.
Upon arrival, all residents receive a key and a code to open the exterior doors of their building, a key to their apartment and a key to their mailbox.
