New AODA Requirement for Government Websites

A new AODA requirement for government websites came into force on January 1st, 2020. Under the Information and Communications Standards, the Ontario government and the Legislative Assembly must make sure that all their websites, as well as content on Internet and Intranet sites, are accessible. Moreover, they must do so by making all these sites compliant with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, Level AA. This international standard gives web developers guidelines on how to make their webpages accessible to computer users with disabilities.
