Accessibility for Employees

The Municipality is committed to an inclusive work place in all aspects of employment activities, including recruitment, selection, orientation, working conditions, career development/advancement and performance management. 

As an employer, the Municipality strives to ensure that current and potential employees with disabilities are accommodated so they may fully participate in all aspects of recruitment and employment.

Accessibility for Web Users

The Municipality of Strathroy-Caradoc will strive to ensure that its official municipal websites and web content conform to the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), 2005, which calls for accessibility levels according to the World Wide Consortium Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, Level A, at a minimum. To illustrate the municipality’s commitment to a high level of website accessibility as quickly as possible, the websites conform to the WCAG 2.0 Level AA, well ahead of the January 1, 2021, date required by AODA regulations. Except where meeting this requirement is not practicable, this conformity applies to the websites, web content and web-based applications that are controlled directly or through a contractual relationship that allows for the modification of the product and web content.

Documents (PDF, Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint) dated Jan. 1, 2012, or later will be posted to the website as AODA compliant. The AODA regulations require that all documents on the website be AODA compliant by January 1, 2014.

Historical Documents (PDF, Scans, Microsoft Word, and Microsoft PowerPoint) dated prior to Dec. 31, 2011: Every effort will be made to make the document available and AODA-compliant. If a document provided on the website contains elements that are inaccessible, an alternative method will be provided. In this event, please contact Strathroy-Caradoc’s Corporate Services Department via the Customer Feedback Process.
