Over the last three months there has been great collaboration between WxT and the Drupal community worked diligently in deploying this open source platform which will save the city money and make it easier and faster for future developments.
The ottawa.ca site is leveraging a Drupal 7 architecture along with the integration of the Government of Canada's WxT/WET accessibility elements lead by the Treasury board of Canada.
