Web accessibility

Your accessible website for maximum impact

Maximize your reach and open your doors to a wider audience by ensuring your website is accessible to everyone. We assist you in making your digital platform compliant, providing a user experience without boundaries and limits.

Your website is often the first impression potential clients will have of your business. To be effective, it must include an attractive design, intuitive navigation, quality content, mobile compatibility, and SEO optimization. These elements are essential to reflect your brand and engage your visitors effectively.

The Importance of Accessibility

Did you know that approximately 6 million Canadians aged 15 and older live with some form of disability, representing almost 22% of the adult population?

This reality highlights the crucial importance of web accessibility. By making websites accessible, we provide these individuals the opportunity to actively participate in all aspects of society, from accessing essential services to engaging in social and professional interactions.

Web accessibility is not just about compliance; it is essential for building an inclusive community where everyone can live with dignity and equality.

 Accessibility Challenges

Understanding the Issues

Web accessibility involves adapting websites so that everyone, including people with disabilities, can use them easily. This means following standards like the WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) to make web content perceivable and navigable for all.

In practice, this means designing websites that everyone can see, understand, and use, thereby improving access to information and services for a wider audience.

 Legal Framework for Accessibility in Canada

Law in Force

The Accessible Canada Act (ACA) was enacted in 2019 to create a barrier-free Canada by 2040. This important law applies to many entities under federal regulation, encompassing sectors such as transportation, communications, and banking.

It aims to ensure that all services provided by these entities are accessible to all Canadians, including those living with disabilities, and sets specific requirements for the gradual elimination of existing barriers.

Benefits of Making Your Site Accessible

Adopting web accessibility is not just an ethical approach; it also enhances the user experience for everyone. By making your site accessible, you expand your audience to include people of all ages and abilities, which can significantly increase your reach.

Additionally, accessibility practices, such as improving site structure and implementing alternative text for images, also optimize your search engine optimization (SEO). These improvements make it easier for search engines to index your site, thereby improving its visibility and attracting more traffic.
