Accessibility

The Prince George Airport Authority is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities. We are continually improving the user experience for everyone, and applying the relevant accessibility standards.

Accessibility of the Website

Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can use the Web. More specifically, Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with the Web, and that they can contribute to the Web. Web accessibility also benefits others, including older people with changing abilities due to aging.

The Prince George Airport Authority’s aim is to adhere as closely as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0) at the AA level for the Prince George Airport website.

Here’s a list of what the Prince George Airport has put in place for our website.

Built in “skip navigation.”
A “Skip to Content” link is built into the site which allows users to skip over the top menu and get to the main content of the page they’re on.

Keyboard-friendly navigation.
The site uses proper headings, lists, and other structural elements which allow tabbed navigation with a keyboard.

Accessible forms and files.
Users with screen readers or other assistive technology are able to fill out and submit all forms. Files on the website, such as documents, PDFs, etc. are accessible, as well.

Alternate text for images.
Images on this site include alternate text in the code or descriptive captions.

High contrast between foreground and background colours.
The text and link colours on the website were made to stand out for better visibility.


Important Note / Request:
Despite our very best efforts, it is possible that there will still be elements, pages or sections of the Prince George Airport website that are not fully accessible, are in the process of becoming accessible, or are lacking an adequate technological solution to make them accessible. Please know that we are constantly reviewing the website in an effort to reach the highest level of accessibility. If you discover an accessibility issue, please bring it to our attention by emailing cberry@pgairport.ca
