The District of Squamish has crafted a website committed to reaching the most amount of citizens, regardless of technology, platform or ability. To that end, we've made our website accessible and easy to use in the following key areas.
1. Website standards
The District of Squamish website conforms to the Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines makes our website user friendly for everyone. This site was built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. Standards compliant code means that the site displays correctly in current browsers and ensures that it will display correctly in future browsers.
2. Portable Document Format (PDFs)
Some of the documents we provide on the website are available in PDF format. You will need the Adobe Acrobat to open these files which you are able to download for free.
3. Screen readers
To assist any District visitors who are visually impaired or blind, our website is also compatible with screen reading software.
While we make all efforts to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website, in PDFs or in all substantially outdated internet browsers
