Website Accessibility

Our Commitment to Accessibility on the Web

Medtronic is committed to providing a website that is accessible for all people with disabilities.  To that end, we look for guidance from the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.0 Level AA (WCAG 2.0 AA) standards, and we take the following actions:

  • We work with a third-party consultant to evaluate and advise on web accessibility and to offer specific recommendations.
  • We use a digital quality management tool on a weekly basis to analyze and identify accessibility issues that arise, so we may address them in a timely manner.
  • We periodically audit a representative selection of web pages to manually inspect for accessibility, testing them while using assistive technologies, to identify issues.
  • We prioritize, address, correct, and ensure that problems are resolved.
  • We have adopted an accessibility policy in order to support our commitment to accessibility for all people with disabilities.

Our efforts are a continual work in progress as our site grows and changes. We welcome feedback on any accessibility issue you may experience, and we are happy to take reasonable efforts to address any issue you may experience. Please contact us if you encounter an accessibility issue; be sure to include the web page URL and the nature of the problem.

Medtronic Canada is committed to treating all persons in a way that allows them to maintain their dignity and independence. As a company, we believe in integration and equal opportunity.

To demonstrate that belief, we are committed to ensuring our employees have the opportunity to maximize their full potential and that all persons we interact with are treated equally.

We are committed to meeting the needs of people with disabilities in an efficient and timely manner, and will do so by preventing and removing barriers to accessibility and meeting accessibility requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation (IASR) and the Accessibility Standards for Customer Service Standard Regulation.
