Making your website accessible
and complying with AODA

Website Accessibility increases your audience reach, market share, and improves your public image by demonstrating commitment to social responsibility.

By law, you must make new and significantly refreshed public websites accessible if you are:

  • a private or non-profit organization with 50+ employees; or
  • a public sector organization

The requirements and deadlines you need to follow depend on the type and size of your organization. You are exempt if you are self-employed and do not have employees.

Beginning January 1, 2014: new public websites, significantly refreshed websites and any web content posted after January 1, 2012 must meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level A

Beginning January 1, 2021: all public websites and web content posted after January 1, 2012 must meet WCAG 2.0 Level AA other than criteria 1.2.4 (live captions) and 1.2.5 (pre-recorded audio descriptions)

WCAG 2.0 is an internationally accepted standard for web accessibility developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), an international team of experts.

Each guideline has three levels of accessibility: A, AA and AAA. Newly created or refreshed websites must meet level A. Later, your website will need to meet Level AA. Meeting Level AAA is not required at this time.

In most cases you must meet the Level A criteria before you can meet the Level AA criteria.

Why
should my website be accessible?

There is an estimated 3.8 million Canadian adults with a disability (13.7% of the population).

By making your website Accessible, it increases your audience reach, market share, and improves your public image by demonstrating commitment to social responsibility. Additional advantages include improved search engine optimization and site performance.
