Juan Olarte

Juan is an accessibility veteran with more than 20 years’ experience. Juan, who immigrated to Canada from Colombia in 1999, is legally blind, and is deeply conscious of the challenges faced by individuals who live with a disability. He currently teaches accessibility website design at Sheridan College.

A digital Accessibility disruptor in his own right, Juan began creating and designing the framework for what he envisioned for a full-serve and efficient accessibility solutions platform over seven years ago. Today, the CEO and the Digita11y Accessible technology team are continuously developing, iterating and prototyping the company’s digital tool.

Together they have recently relaunched what is now the A11YnTM platform; the company’s one-stop digital accessibility interactive project management tool.

Juan has a long-storied career honing his expertise working as an Accessibility specialist for organizations such as Bank of Montreal, Scotiabank, CIBC, Ryerson University, Sheridan College, George Brown College, NTT Data Inc, the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, and Ministry of Consumer Services, CNIB, and Deloitte Canada.
