Government of Québec standards of accessibility
Loto-Québec is committed to ensuring that everyone is able to access its web site, whether or not they have a handicap. That is why the Corporation does its best to comply with web accessibility standards adopted by the Québec government’s Conseil du trésor.
Standard sur l’accessibilité d’un site Web (SGQRI 008-01)
Standard sur l’accessibilité d’un document téléchargeable (SGQRI 008-02)
Standard sur l’accessibilité du multimédia dans un site Web (SGQRI 008-03)
Accessibility measures in place
We endeavour to continually improve our site.
In remodelling the Lotteries site, Loto-Québec’s teams placed particular focus on:
- Compliance with W3C standards
- Possibility of replacing images with text
- Colour contrast (the background to text contrast of all site elements is equal to or higher than 4.5:1)
- Language change management
- Ease of navigation and links
Accessibility of online game offerings
In order to offer online games, Loto-Québec relies on technologies from service providers who are not subject to the Government of Québec’s standards (SGQRI-008).
Accessibility standards have not yet been implemented for online games. The technology provided by the supplier with whom Loto-Québec does business prevents us from making them accessible.
