New Mobile-Friendly Website
- The look: Information from the old site was built into new responsive templates (which allows content to flow and resize automatically depending on the screen size of your device)
- Home page: Improved layout.
- Images: Bigger and better quality.
What’s the same?
- Content: We moved information from the old site into the updated site.
- Main navigation categories: The main navigation is the same. Sub-navigation options within each main section are simplified for a better navigation experience on smaller devices. The full navigation options for each main section are available from the landing page related to that category (the first link next to the house icon that appears in each main navigation list).
- Accessibility features: Heading styles, alternative text for non-text elements, and tool tips for links have been applied in the new templates.
- Links/page URLs: Most of the site’s links are the same as before; any previously bookmarked pages should work.
- Search function: Same Google Search tool; new responsive format for the search results page.
- Custom and third-party web applications and online services or tools (such as calendar, agendas and minutes, program registration and most online forms) have the look of the old site but links bring you back to the new site.
- Continue ongoing review and implementation of web content accessibility guidelines as outlined by the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA).
- Monitor feedback and make further improvements to content and page layouts.
- Begin planning for the larger web improvement initiative (fall 2017 and into 2018).
