The Gouvernement du Québec makes its website available to all Internet users and its accessibility enables individuals with specific problems to consult the information available on it. Accessibility also compensates for certain technical constraints to facilitate navigation.
Government departments and bodies are responsible for ensuring the compliance of their downloadable documents.
Application of the standard
Québec.ca relies on a content management system that facilitates the widespread application of several factors that ensure compliance. For example, recourse to templates and stylesheets ensures the organization and structuring of contents that comply with the standard.
Moreover, workshops, training, and guidance are offered on a day-to-day basis to the government’s digital teams to foster the acquisition and application of good practices in the realm of accessibility.
The Gouvernement du Québec conducts accessibility tests using the following tools:
NonVisual desktop Access (NVDA)
WCAG Contrast checker
Colour Contrast Analyser
