Last week, Lionel Gadoury RGD spoke on behalf of the Association of Registered Graphic Designers at EnAbling ExChange, an event organized by the Accessibility Directorate of Ontario and hosted by the Toronto Reference Library.
The event explored elements of the province's ongoing journey toward an accessible Ontario by 2025 and highlighted new tools and resources from the government's EnAbling Change program as well as the implementation of accessibility standards.
In partnership with the Accessibility Directorate of Ontario, RGD is helping to develop guidelines and tools for communications and design work to be accessed, understood and enjoyed by all audiences.
