Digital accessibility is about people. Providing digital accessibility means we ensure our diverse population of learners can access and benefit from our programs. Digital accessibility also means that websites, tools, documents, videos and more are designed and developed so they are easy to navigate, easy to view and hear, and easy to use. More specifically, people can:
- perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with our programs on their computer, tablet or phones.
- respond and contribute to synchronous webinars.
- perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with anything that can be accessed in a digital (electronic) format including documents, emails, and content viewed or downloaded from our website, added to a webinar chat or linked to via social media.

We recommend a proactive approach to ensure all users can access, use, and benefit from our programs and communications, via equal or nearly equal methods, regardless of socioeconomic status, temporary or permanent disability, or ethnicity.
