No matter where you live in Canada —
from British Columbia to Newfoundland and
Labrador— you’ve likely noticed ‘web
accessibility’ becoming an area of greater
focus for governments and organizations in
recent years. We’ve seen federal accessibility
legislation become law, the release of new
statistics surrounding disability in Canada, and
a growing public awareness of digital inclusivity
as we approached the January 2021 deadline for
Ontario web accessibility requirements.
Many will be surprised to learn that the number
of Canadians who identify as having a disability
is growing. In fact, 22% of Canadians aged 15
years and older have at least one disability that
limits their everyday activities — that’s up from
a reported 13% in 2012. These disabilities can be
related to pain, flexibility, mobility, vision, hearing,
dexterity, learning, memory, or development.
