Accessibility Statements

Consider developing an accessibility statement to post on your site. An accessibility statement demonstrates your commitment to accessibility and specifies your accessibility standards.  Documenting your site accessibility features and known limitations invokes trust and invites discussion. You can also invite visitors to the site to provide feedback and respond to that feedback to let them know you’re committed to doing your best to incorporate their suggestions. The AODA requires organizations to establish a “process for receiving and responding to feedback about the manner in which it provides goods, services or facilities to persons with disabilities”.

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has an excellent resource on Developing an Accessibility Statement. As an example, the Government of Canada accessibility statement may give you some ideas for creating yours.
