Our accessible website
This website was built to be accessible to all travellers, meeting or exceeding the WCAG 2.0 Level AA standard, set out by the W3 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. Members of the accessibility community were also consulted in the development of the website. The Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) and the Inclusive Design Research Centre (IDRC) were both engaged to run checks and validation, providing feedback on how to resolve accessibility concerns. After launch, we received feedback from public and developed a new release that further improved accessibility.

Our accessible airport
At Pearson, we’re committed to providing a smooth and enjoyable airport experience for all. We provide a wide variety of accessible services and facilities designed to enable more choice, comfort, and greater independence as you travel through the airport.
We regularly consult with advocacy groups for persons with disabilities to co-develop new and enhanced services. These services are available to travellers, as well as our airport worker community, which is committed to providing all travellers the support need for a positive passenger experience.
