Digital accessibility at McGill University

Making our digital spaces accessible

At McGill we aim to create an accessible, diverse, and inclusive campus, and this includes our digital spaces. McGill University adheres to the Standard sur l'accessibilité des sites Web (SGQRI 008 2.0).

This is one way we are addressing equity at McGill and ensuring that faculty, staff and students with disabilities can rely on accessible digital resources. Accessibility is an ever evolving field and we continue to learn and implement inclusive best practices.
