Why is it highly necessary to attend this webinar?

INCLUSION:
16% of the adult population - approximately 6 million Canadians - live with cognitive, motor, visual, or auditory disabilities. People with disabilities do not have the same ease of navigating an application or website. The goal of our testing expert is to ensure that the product is accessible and usable by all of your customers, including those with disabilities.

MANDATORY:

  • Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) : Private or non-profit organizations with more than 50 employees and all public sector organizations must make their website and web content compliant with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA by January 1, 2021.
  • The federal law in Canada is called the ACA, or Accessible Canada Act, and it requires WCAG 2.1 AA compliance for federal government entities and sectors overseen or controlled by the federal government.

BUSINESS:
Increase the number of users, better referencing (SEO) (the algorithm takes this criterion into account to increase the SEO of a site), site and app optimization, higher conversion rate.
