We have a duty to comply with applicable accessibility legislation and regulation such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (“WCAG”) 2.0 level AA standard published by the World Wide Web Consortium and the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (“AODA”).

Website Accessibility Statement
We work with eSSENTIAL Accessibility to ensure our website meets accessibility standards and obligations. We have conducted automatic and manual audits since October 26, 2020 to identify accessibility issues and to create a plan for remediation. All critical issues found on our most visited web pages have been resolved as of December 31, 2020. By May 31, 2021 we will remediate all outstanding issues from our audits. Going forward, we will continuously monitor for any additional accessibility issues and ensure that all new website content meets the same standards.
In partnership with eSSENTIAL Accessibility, we provide an assistive technology application for people who have trouble typing, gesturing, moving a mouse, or reading. This application is free to download and it incorporates tools such as mouse and keyboard replacements, voice recognition, speech enablement, hands-free/touch-free navigation, and more.
