Questions

Are there any legal requirements I have to consider for my website?

There is Government legislation regarding some of the aspects of websites - mainly in the areas of privacy and accessibility.  You need to be aware of what these rules are and comply with them, otherwise you are opening yourself up to potential lawsuits and bad publicity.  Privacy is critical and being transparent with website users about what you do with their information is essential. 

Accessibility means providing your information to those with disabilities - whether its motor skills, eyesight or hearing challenges, colour blindness etc.  There are actual laws surrounding with significant fines for website owners who do not comply.  Right now it depends on what province you are in as to what those laws are.

A professional website designer will be aware of these, and other laws and rules that must be applied.  If your webmaster or designer is not aware these, its time to get a new website designer who is in tune with the industry!
