Accessibility policy

We recognize the importance of offering everybody equal access to all information disseminated by our web-based platforms. In addition, our websites will be progressively adapted so as to comply with new governmental standards concerning Internet accessibility.

What has been done

To date, we've posted a mobile version of our website online, including its most popular content and tools. This mobile version, when accessed from a computer, a laptop or an iPad, is easier to navigate for people with certain disabilities, especially those with visual and motor challenges.

Moreover, in the context of the general election of September 4, 2012, significant efforts have been channelled into making all the information and tools comply with established standards. As such, with the exception of the Apply online module, all content of the mobile version of the website devoted to the general election met government standards.

Here are a few examples of accessibility standards that have been applied:

  • drafting texts written in plain language;
  • structuring web pages that reflect hierarchy, i.e. using titles and subtitles;
  • reviewing tables to make them easier to read;
  • adding a text equivalent for images;
  • using valid tags and style sheets; and
  • enabling verification with adaptive technology, including Non Visual Desk Accessibility (NVDA).
