We have an ongoing working relationship with the CNIB as accessibility compliance testers and evaluators. We test and evaluate websites and manage usability testing.

This project focused on accessibility issues for the website for the Psychiatric Patient Advocate office of the Ontario government.

Our Work With Foundations and Non-Profit Organizations
Sterling Creations is very pleased to be a part of the Torres Foundation’s projects and initiatives. In February 2005, Donna Jodhan, president of Sterling Creations, was invited by the Torres Foundation to speak at the Cariatech Conference in Trinidad. The conference was the first of its kind to be held in the Caribbean. In addition to Donna, Ted Henter of Hentermath and one of the founders of Freedom Scientific, was the main speaker and was also part of the ribbon cutting ceremony. Donna spoke on two topics: issues of employment facing special-needs persons, and the importance of accessible websites. This conference was seen as the first major breakthrough for special-needs persons in the Caribbean as they work towards building partnerships with governments and businesses to develop and foster training, employment, and educational programs. The Torres Foundation has assumed a leadership role and has asked Sterling Creations to be a part of their team. The Torres Foundation is also focusing its efforts on projects in the U.S. as well as Europe.
