Accessibility

Our approach

GC Notify was started using open-source code from the United Kingdom (GOV.UK Notify). Originally built to the UK government’s accessibility standards, Notify has been modified for the Canadian context.

Our goal is to go above the minimum compliance requirement level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1).

Known issues and limitations

  • Screen readers do not always read text in emails in the correct language.
  • GC Notify is not currently tested with mobile browsers.
