About ALS Society Of Quebec
The Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Society (ALS) of Quebec provides support and information services to people living with ALS and their loved ones. They raise funds to ensure the maintenance and development of services and to promote research, which is a source of hope. They also raise awareness of the disease among the general public as well as government officials and medical and paramedical practitioners. ALS is also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
How we helped
Phil redesigned and produced ALS Quebec’s website, a custom WordPress site that allows the client to promote multiple events across the province, update content themselves and operate more efficiently. Fully responsive for mobile and tablet devices, it was also important that we add special accessibility features for people with limited physical mobility.

One of the biggest sites we've tackled
ALS Quebec’s website has over 1,100 pages in two languages, making it one of the largest sites we’ve ever built. The development required extensive project management and close collaboration with the client’s team to align content with production deadlines, design features with strong functionality.
Knowing how many people today will have their first experience of the website through their mobile or tablet, we paid close attention to designing and building a site that would be responsive and easy to navigate.
Adapted to special needs
Many people affected by ALS have limited motor skills and use adapted tools to surf the web. Our team had to pay close attention to the physical limitations some visitors have when we designed this site. Large button areas, choice of font size, among other user experience details, allow those affected by ALS to peruse the site as effectively as any other visitor.
