About Consultation Québec
The Québec government is making its website accessible to all Internet users, whether they are disabled.
The website’s contents are subject to the Standard sur l’accessibilité des sites Web (SGQRI 008 2.0), which hinges on the Règles pour l’accessibilité des contenus Web 2.0 (WCAG 2.0). All web content must satisfy the compliance requirements stipulated in the WCAG 2.0 by complying with:
- all AA-level success criteria, except for the criteria 1.2.4 Subtitles (live) and 1.2.5 Self-description (pre-recorded);
- AAA-level success criteria concerning rules 2.3.2 Three flashes and 3.1.4 Abbreviations;
- one of the two compliance requirements of the WCAG 2.0: A-level 1.2.2 Subtitles (pre-recorded) or AAA-level 1.2.6 Sign language (pre-recorded), using Québec sign language.
The Québec government cannot guarantee the accessibility of certain content from third parties that is not subject to these standards, such as a PDF document submitted by a participant.
If you are having difficulty navigating on the website or wish to obtain a more accessible version of certain documents, please contact us by email.
The Québec government conducts accessibility tests using the following tools:
Consultation Québec relies on Decidim open source software. The Québec government is seeking to enhance the accessibility of certain components such as:
- the search field;
- the vote buttons;
- the images generated automatically by Decidim;
- the pull-down menus.
When possible, remedial measures are shared with the community on Github.
