Web Site Accessibility
Accessibility is an important part of our website.
We're doing as much as we can to make sure everyone can access the information they need from our site.
We are also working towards compliance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005, focusing on requirements set out in the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
Making the website easier for all to use
Visitors of our site can expect to find the use of plain language, documents offered in an alternative format, and using appropriate heading tags for content and alternative text tags for images. These practices help maintain a higher level of accessibility for the users.
Other additional accessible adjustments can be made to the way information is displayed on your computer such as increasing the font size on your screen, changing background colours or having the words on your screen read to you.
Accessibility planning helps the Municipality with identifying, removing and preventing many different types of barriers. Our Plan identifies the steps we are taking to remove and prevent barriers within the Municipality.
