What is Web Accessibility?
The Internet is made up of users with different abilities, impairments, and contexts. Web accessibility refers to ensuring websites, technology and content are created so that everyone can comprehend, operate, understand and use information and services online. Some examples include websites that can be navigated by keyboards or assistive devices, ensuring images have alternative text where necessary, and content is clearly organized with logical headings. Governments are increasingly implementing laws to encourage organizations to provide websites and content that are accessible to everyone (e.g. AODA and the B.C. Accessibility Act).
Upanup is committed to creating web solutions that are accessible for people with disabilities, and meet the WCAG 2.1 Level AA standards. Our internal teams strive to achieve AAA standards and do so wherever they can.

Our purpose at Upanup is to make life easier for people through better online experiences and access to information. We continuously grow and share our knowledge surrounding accessibility. It is factored into everything we do and engrained into every site and design we create. We offer various services, resources, and learning opportunities to our team and our clients to ensure that together, we can make the web more accessible.
