Our Commitment

Toronto Grace Health Centre is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability.

We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.

Guidelines and Standards

This website endeavours to conform to level Double-A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0.

These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user-friendly for all people.

This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant HTML/CSS code means any future browsers will also display it correctly.

Accessible Features

Below you will find a list of some of the technology solutions we have integrated to make our website easy to navigate, fast-loading, and accessible.

Skip to Main Content:

Used to jump to the main content area. To visually see the link in the upper left corner of the web page, press the Tab key.

Resize Text

Use the Up and Down arrows at the top of each page to adjust the size of text content without affecting the images and layout.  Text size changes remain effective as you navigate from page to page.

Photographs/Images

Uses Alternative Text “ALT” and/or “TITLE” attributes. ALT/TITLE attributes provide a written description of the image, which is accessible to screen readers, and it is visible when the mouse is placed over the image. This is also useful for people who have images turned off on their browser, in which case a description will display where the image used to be.

Breadcrumbs

Located at the top of each page (except for the main home page) and directly below the main navigation, provides a trail of where you are and where you have been. Breadcrumbs make it easier to navigate your way back to the root folder.
