Web Accessibility

Resizing Your Text or Browser

 

Our Health Unit strives to make all of its web resources accessible to the public. If you are not able to access information on this website, please contact us using our Contact Us page. We will then work to make the web content accessible by providing or arranging for the provision of accessible formats and communications supports.

There are two ways you can make the text in your browser larger. You can resize the whole browser, which will make everything including pictures and text larger. Or, you can resize just the text, also called the font size.

 

Please note: Once you make these changes, they will apply to any website you visit, not just ours.
