In May 2010, the Quebec Treasury Board adopted the Standards sur l'accessibilité du Web, which stipulate the rules applicable to government agency websites in order to make their respective websites (public, intranet or extranet) accessible to all.
We called on web accessibility experts as well as a team of experienced project managers to create a new website that meets the needs of users with functional limitations. This redesign project includes several phases and we will continue to improve web accessibility over the next few years.
In the context of the launch of our new website, we also mandated the Confédération des organismes de personnes handicapées du Québec (COPHAN) to perform tests with persons with functional limitations. As such, we made sure the site was easily accessible according to their needs.
Lastly, the AMT accessibility policy is clear and mentions that the information on the network as well as the documentation distributed by the AMT and posted on its website must be accessible. In addition, the AMT is committed to gradually adapting its tools and information with a view to making them accessible.
Mobility for all is a priority for the AMT. That's why it is committed to improving travel conditions for the entire population by adopting a Accessibility development plan for the AMT network. Thanks to this plan, all users will benefit from this overall accessibility improvement.
This plan complies with article 67 of the Act to secure handicapped persons in the exercise of their rights with a view to achieving social, school and workplace integration (RSQ, chapter E-20.1). It aims to ensure, within a reasonable period, public transportation for handicapped persons within the territory served. This measure affects all of our projects and includes projects specific to improving accessibility. Four components are addressed: communication, infrastructure, rolling stock and human aspect.
In addition to the accessibility of the regular network, the AMT is also responsible for supporting, expanding, coordinating and promoting paratransit services for persons with disabilities in Greater Montréal. The AMT gives financial assistance to para-transit agencies (PTA) via the Metropolitan para-transit aid program in order to support and integrate their services.
The Action plan with regard to handicapped persons is a corporate plan that deals with the accessibility of the head office, developments and acquisitions linked to the head office and communications.
The action plan complies with article 61.1 of the Act to secure handicapped persons in the exercise of their rights with a view to achieving social, school and workplace integration (RSQ, chapter E-20.1).
The topics covered include the hiring of handicapped persons and access to information. Established on a three-year basis, the plan is followed up annually. An internal committee composed of representatives from each unit works to meet the objectives.
