Recent Deadlines & Milestones
New AODA requirements began in 2021 as part of Ontario’s goal of being fully accessible to people with disabilities by 2025. As a result, many more businesses and institutions need to ensure their websites are accessible. Failure to do so will result in fines of up to $50,000 CAD per day and up to $100,000 CAD per day for big corporations.
Actionable plan for compliance
Certified accessibility specialists
How it works
1. Demo, Scoping, and Onboarding
We will demo your website and discuss your WCAG goals, current ADA compliance, and specifics from your lawsuit or demand letter (if applicable). Then, we’ll create a proposal outlining the audit and certification project.
2. RAMP Account and A11y Center
Sign up for RAMP to install our A11Y Center immediately. Our platform and specialists will guide you through creating an accessibility statement and assigning and training an accessibility advocate.
3. Initial WCAG Audit
We’ll conduct an exhaustive audit that tests for every WCAG success criterion using automated tools, manual code review, and assistive technologies and deliver a detailed report.
4. Accessibility Remediation & Support
We’ll assign a web accessibility specialist to support your team as they complete remediation to ensure that tasks are completed correctly and efficiently.
5. Accessibility Testing
Our team of individuals with disabilities will test your website using their assistive technologies to identify any remaining barriers. We’ll work with you to eliminate any uncovered issues.
Completed Your Accessibility Compliance Report? Now What?
Your website must conform to WCAG 2.0 AA by January 1, 2021. Conformance applies to websites and web content published after Jan 1, 2012, including web-based applications that an organization controls. Those that have not done so by the first day of 2021 face fines of up to $50,000 CAD per day.
We agree with the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion and strive to create websites that are universally accessible. However, we are sympathetic to businesses caught offguard by this requirement and are ready to work with you to meet conformance efficiently and cost effectively.
