Each year, sporting organizations, communities, and not-for-profits from across the Yukon territory benefit from program funding made possible by Lotteries Yukon. The primary resource for accessing this funding is through the Lotteries Yukon website.
Lotteries Yukon has a mandate to give back to the Yukon community through art, sports, and recreation. But this mandate wasn't well known to the groups they are meant to serve. A key goal of the new website was to improve both awareness of and access to these benefits.
Since internet speeds in the Yukon tend to be much slower than other areas of Canada, it was important that we designed a modern, mobile-friendly website with quickly-loading pages. OXD worked with Lotteries Yukon to ensure that the information on their new website was easy to find, easy to understand, and easy to navigate. Beginning with competitive and comparative research, we developed a modern visual style that improved the user experience for site visitors. The new site now meets Government of Yukon service delivery standards, including French localization.
A well-established content management system (CMS) like Drupal offered increased security, mobile accessibility, and faster loading pages, while making it easier for internal staff to maintain the site.
