This is an accessibility statement from Hamilton Civic Museums.
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) identifies the overall goal of the standards are to:
“create Web content that is perceivable, operable and understandable by the broadest possible range of users and compatible with their wide range of assistive technologies, now and in the future."
This standard has been widely adopted, including by the Government of Canada and is consistent with goals of the Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2001 (ODA). The HamiltonCivicMuseums.ca website will generally adhere to the Priority 1 and 2 checkpoints outlined by the WAI standard.
In addition, the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) explains the requirements to make web content more accessible to people with disabilities using three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. The hamiltoncivicmuseums.ca website is partially conformant with WCAG 2.0 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.
The hamiltoncivicmuseums.ca portal will continue to explore ways to enhance accessibility.
