Accessibility Statement

Foster Moore strives to maintain a fully accessible site in the context of the following: –

  • Within the United States of America -in accordance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998. Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act Amendments mandates that federal agencies must ensure that all electronic and information technology purchased, maintained, or developed meets the accessibility standards established by the U.S. Access Board. While Foster Moore is not a federal agency, we fully support the mandate as a private commercial organization. More information on Section 508 and the technical standards can be found at
  • Within Canada, specifically Ontario – in accordance with the Information and Communication standard, along with the applicable general requirements of the Access for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) of 2005. More Information on the AODA can be found at
  • Worldwide – in accordance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 of 2008, and associated success criteria levels A and AA. More information on the WCAG 2.0 guidelines can be found at
