Marie-Claude Gagnon

Accessibility Compliance Officer
The University of Ottawa

I first work in Web Accessibility in 2012 at the Royal Military College of Canada. I fell in love with this new emerging field. I am now the Accessibility Officer for the University of Ottawa. Within this capacity, I sat on the Provincial Governance and Leadership group to develop an accessibility certification process across the province. I also run a nationwide online community on accessible education and I am a Committee Member of the Post-Secondary Education Standards Development for the Ministry for Seniors and Accessibility of Ontario. I have been sporadically invited to teach components of accessibility, act as a mentor on accessible projects making for students in engineering and provide advice on external initiatives such as Canada’s federal framework on PTSD.
