Infrastructure Canada Web site content is regularly archived to ensure that the remaining content is up to date.
In order to make this site more accessible, Infrastructure Canada has employed templates that:
- are HTML5 conformant, to improve compatibility with adaptive technologies, handheld devices, browsers and search engines;
- have been successfully tested on a wide range of adaptive technologies and browser/platform combinations to ensure that Canadians can access Web pages regardless of the technology used;
- include major components, such as the common menu bar, side menu, and content area that are properly marked up with headings to simplify navigation with a screen reader;
- employ no-table layout and design to simplify screen reader navigation by reducing the structural complexity of Web pages;
- improve accessibility by allowing visitors to configure visual elements to meet their accessibility needs;
- use scaleable fonts and text-based navigational elements to improve accessibility and simplify navigation using adaptive technologies;
- provide printer-friendly functionality in the Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to render pages more compatible with printers and to prevent printing unnecessary page elements; and
- separate visual presentation from the document structure.
While every reasonable effort has been made to ensure the accessibility of this site, some content or services found here might be inaccessible to some visitors. In those circumstances, the contact information for someone who can assist you can be found on our Contact Us page.
