Ever wish all federal government websites were run on common components that are accessible and secure? The Government of Canada has taken this unique approach to Web management and built a platform of standards-compliant (W3C and WCAG) components that its agencies use to build and maintain their sites. Each website can apply unique themes to control its look and feel, but the themes all run on top of these common components, ensuring their sites are accessible and secure. The reusable components of the Web Experience Toolkit (WET) are open source software and free for use by departments and external Web communities.

Join us for a special presentation by Paul Jackson, from the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat (Canada's counterpart to OMB), who will provide an overview of WET, and discuss how it's revolutionized the way the Government of Canada manages its digital properties.
