Toronto – November 29, 2010 – Today the Federal Court of Canada released a landmark decision concerning the right of Canadians with disabilities to access government websites.
Justice Kelen has ruled that Canada’s federal government must deliver key websites in a useable format for blind and partially-sighted Canadians. Canada will now be joining with numerous other countries – such as the United States, Australia and EU member states – that have already made their federal websites accessible. The tools and standards for building accessible websites are inexpensive and widely available to web developers.
