Accessibility Laws for Ontarians
Ontario is the first Canadian Province to pass the accessibility law (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act – AODA) in 2005 in order to develop accessibility standards for public and private sectors — in physical as well as digital spaces.
By law, you must make new and significantly refreshed websites accessible if you are an organization with 50+ employees or a public sector organization.– Visit Who Must Comply on Ontario.ca
Assess your website with an audit
A web accessibility audit is an expert evaluation of your website analyzing how much you comply with the AODA requirements.
We perform a first summary of your website and offer a free quote for your accessibility audit. Your quote is calculated based on:
- Measuring your written and graphic content for readability/visibility
- Measuring your website’s performance and functionality (i.e. page loading speed, tools like onsite search)
You will receive a summary score of these measurements with your quote.
Your accessibility audit report includes:
- In-depth analysis of a representative sample page in your website
- Summary list of best practices for your content needing redesign or adjustments
- A checklist of your current compliance and violations to WCAG 2.1 guidelines
- Report detailing what work is needed to meet compliance
