Mobile App Feedback
The Office of Disability Issues would like your feedback on a new app the Government of Canada has developed as part of its Job Bank.
The mobile app helps users find employment by providing full access to the job opportunities found on the Job Bank website, and by including mobile features such as GPS location-based searching and push notifications for when new matching jobs become available. It also provides customized job searching with filters such as “persons with disabilities”, “youth” and “Indigenous people.”
The Government of Canada has done testing to help ensure accessibility standards are met and focused on the performance of mobile screen readers (testing: VoiceOver, TalkBack, Zoom, Colour Ratio, etc) and other assistive technology tools.
The Job Bank team is new to the mobile app space and so they invite you to try the app and suggest improvements. You can send your feedback through the in-app Contact Us feature or via this link. Your general feedback on Job Bank’s services to the disability community will also be welcomed.
Please also share this with your networks and encourage them to use it and to provide feedback.
For more information about how Job Bank services can help people with disabilities find employment and help employers hire persons with disabilities, you can visit their website.
