We are continually incorporating into our Web Site the Universal Accessibility concept - serve our large audience by following guidelines set out by the AODA - The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act and the World Wide Web Consortium.
If you require communications in an alternative format, you can request accessible formats and communication supports using our Accessible Document Request Form.
The City of Burlington Web Site audience includes those users with disabilities. If you have a suggestion on ways to improve the accessibility of the City's Web Site, please email the Web Editor.
This accessibility statement is limited to the Web Site of the City. The City assumes no responsibility for web sites that are linked to, hosted by or otherwise electronically connected to the City's Web Site or Web Servers.
