To better serve everyone in the community, Collingwood sought to replace their outdated municipal website with a more accessible, user-friendly communication tool. The province of Ontario is leading the way nationally in enforcing website accessibility standards. By 2021, all public sector organizations in the province will need to provide fully accessible web content that meets the international Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). The Town took this opportunity as a chance to rethink their website so that it is easier for their staff to update content, and for residents, businesses, and visitors to get the information they want quickly and easily.
