Commitment to Accessibility

We at the byDesign eLab recognize the need to make this on-line consultation inclusive. To this end, we are compliant with priorities 1 and 2 of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and adherence to the Treasury Board of Canada's Common Look and Feel Guidelines. In some small instances, this site may deviate from one of these standards where design or improved access warranted.

We will make a continuing effort to update this site to provide the greatest accessibility to the widest audience of users, including accessibility testing with enabling technologies, standards compliance with the most widely adopted Canadian and global standards, and continual response to user suggestions for improvement.

If you have difficulty accessing this site, or if you have suggestions on how to improve its accessibility please feel free to write us at
