Hi Peter, all,

Canada doesn't implement WCAG 2.0 yet. 

CLF 2.0 is still mapped on WCAG 1.0 as of today, but an update to the standards is being developed right now. 

From what I've heard from government employees actively involved in a11y at the Canadian government, we could expect that upgrade to be published any weeks now.

So yes, when that time comes, Canada will be implementing WCAG 2.0 as the accessibility standard for government websites, pretty much like what Australia already has.
