Host Societies are now able to use the custom Drupal 7, responsive theme and platform. Its shared infrastructure incorporates content and materials from previous Canada Games, has a consistent architecture and a “look and feel” that is accessible to all, including the visually impaired.
Host Societies can apply their unique branding elements to the custom Canada Games theme while respecting the “look and feel” of a Canada Games web property. The Hosts are able to use and share content with the Council and other Host Societies.
For 2019, there was a whole new look and feel. The design incorporates a fluidly mobile approach, configuring for all screen and device sizes without breaking its format, no matter the type of content or device used. The scalable program approach gives the Council the ability to create new functionality and applications, provide consistent user experience while keeping costs in check. Additional user engagement tools have been added and consideration has been made for future websites, apps and online tools.
