Accessibility – Hydro-Québec’s Web Site

Hydro-Québec is committed to making its Web site accessible to all users, whether they have a disability or not. For that reason, the company adheres to the Web accessibility standards (links in French only) adopted by the Québec government's Conseil du trésor.

Several techniques are already being used on Hydro-Québec's Web site to make it as accessible as possible.

Improving accessibility is an ongoing process and will be carried out gradually as the site is revamped and updated.

Special attention is paid to sections that target our customers and the general public.

There are still some barriers to overcome, but Hydro-Québec is continuing its efforts to make lasting improvements to the accessibility of its Web site.

We appreciate your comments and suggestions on our Web site's accessibility. With your help, we hope to make our site more and more accessible to everyone.
