Green Shield Canada has redesigned its website (, in order to be more accessible for those with disabilities, such as difficulty typing, moving a mouse and reading Web pages. The new site went live today; to access the assistive features, click the “eSSENTIAL Accessibility” symbol on Green Shield’s homepage.

“We developed our new website as part of a whole new look because we want people to know that we’re not a typical health and dental benefits carrier. We’re different…we’re a compelling alternative, so we’ve updated our look to more accurately represent what we’re all about,” says Steve Bradie, president and CEO of Green Shield Canada.

The new feature can help serve website visitors with conditions such as stroke, paralysis, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and Parkinson’s disease, as well as literacy deficiencies, limited English proficiency, dyslexia, and/or visual impairments.
