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 standard (links in French only) adopted by the Québec government’s Conseil du trésor.
This standard is based on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, a collection of recommendations published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and approved by the International Organization for Standardization, which has made it an international standard (ISO/IEC 40500:2012).

- What is Web accessibility and what are its benefits
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.
