The District of Logan Lake recognizes its obligation under the British Columbia Web Accessibility 2024 Initiative and other disability laws to provide equal access to information found on the web. Our website has been carefully developed to allow access to our entire website where possible for users with special needs. Some of these include but are not limited to; how colour is used throughout our website for those who may have visual impairment, the size of the font, scalability of the design, and accessible content (live text versus image based text) which also includes alternative text fields for screen readers to understand imagery on the page and so much more.

We believe in a pro-active approach and will continue to improve and make efforts to ensure our site is as accessible as it can be. This approach ensures a positive user experience while accessing information from our website by structuring our page layout and navigational architecture into easy to understand pairings.

BC Guidelines on Accessibility expands beyond the web and it’s 2024 initiative is to make British Columbia the most accessible province in Canada which will affect the environment we live in and how we utilize and access the digital world. The BC government will follow the W3C WCAG 2.0 Standards on AA accessibility and is committed to meeting these standards. Accessibility 2024 is a ten year action plan to help move the province forward to providing easier access to information and services provided on the web.

Each browser you use to view the web may have different ways in which to increase the font size on the browser. Typically you can hold down the CTRL Key (or Command Key on a Mac) and press the plus key (+). By doing this you will increase the size of the font in your browser. To reverse or to make smaller you follow the same except using the minus sign (-) to make smaller. If this does not work, you may be using an older browser. You can view the following Web Accessibility Initiative Site (https://www.w3.org/WAI/changedesign.html) to learn how to change your font size in older browsers.

Some of our content may include Adobe PDF documents. As not all browsers are equip with a PDF installed by default, it may be necessary to download a PDF Viewer. If you have any trouble accessing our PDF documents you can download a PDF Viewer by downloading the Adobe Acrobat Reader (https://get.adobe.com/reader/) It costs nothing to download. Just ensure you uncheck the optional offer to install McAfee Security Scan as this is not necessary to run the program.
