Website Accessibility and Usability
The City of Niagara Falls has taken steps to ensure that all visitors to our website will be able to get the information they need. We also offer an alternative site that is text-only along with the ability to have the text of the website read out loud to the visitor.
The alternative version of our website will appeal to such users as:
- visitors with a disability
- Mobile users (Cell phone, PDA, etc)
- Low bandwidth users (dial-up)
- ... and many more
Please visit our Text only site at text.niagarafalls.ca - the text only version of www.niagarafalls.ca.
In order to have each web page read out loud, click on the blue speaker icon () located at the top of each content section.
Feel free to view the City of Niagara Falls Accessible Customer Service Policy for additional information.
AODA Complinace (Emergency & Public Safety Information)
Upon request, the City of Niagara Falls will make every effort to ensure that emergency and public safety information is made accessible to people with disabilities. In doing so, the City will work with the person requesting the information to determine how their needs can be met as soon as possible. Please note, this only applies to information that is available to the public.
