Links with icons

Usage guidelines

Use links to connect to relevant information that supports the content. Links include:

  • internal or external web page
  • emails
  • publications
  • images
  • video or audio files

External links

Links that go to a site outside of Alberta.ca must be accompanied with an external link icon.

Content guidelines

  • Write descriptive link names with a minimum 15 characters including spaces.
  • Use page and document titles as the link, when applicable.
  • Never link generic expressions, such as ‘click here’ or ‘find out more,’ as they provide little navigational value to someone using a screen reader.
  • Use program emails but avoid personal emails.
