Accessibility

Our website aspires to meet the accessibility guidelines of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA.  

WCAG 2.0 is an industry standard which covers a wide range of recommendations for making website content more accessible. Following these guidelines helps to make our site accessible to a wider range of people with disabilities, including blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, learning disabilities, cognitive limitations, limited movement, speech disabilities, photosensitivity and combinations of these. The guidelines provide tests to ensure that web content is “perceivable, operable, understandable and robust”.

The current release has a few outstanding items that we are addressing in order to be fully compliant.  For example, for those using screen readers, some message boxes open at the end of the page.

We continue to work on improvements to the accessibility of our site.  For help navigating,  contact webmaster@alzheimer.ca


Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities

The Alzheimer Society of Niagara Region (ASNR) strives to provide goods and services in a way that respects the dignity and independence of people with disabilities and will use reasonable efforts to ensure its policies, practices and procedures are consistent with the spirit and requirements of the Accessibility Standards for Customer Service (Ontario Regulation 429/07). When providing a document to a person with a disability, the ASNR will work with the individual to determine options in order to provide the document or the information contained in the document in a format that takes the person’s disability into account.

Under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA), organizations must make their Accessibility Reports available to the public. Our accessibility policy and plan is available upon request.
