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 toward compliance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005, focusing on requirements set out in the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Initially only webpage (HTML) content will be fully accessible to the standards. Supporting materials such as PDF documents may not be fully compliant but the Town is working towards updating supporting documents to improve accessibility.
If you use assistive technology and the format of any content on this web site interferes with your ability to access the information, please contact the Town's Web Editor by phone at 905.584.2272 ext 4034 and we will make every effort to provide you with a format that is accessible to you.
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.
