  • How to comply with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) with a fast, accessible, and mobile-friendly website. 

  • What to consider when choosing a website platform such as WordPress, Shopify, or Squarespace.

  • How to set up an online store, how to accept payments online and other e-commerce fundamentals.
