GCWeb, the WET-BOEW theme

The page templates and design patterns below comprise a reference implementation of the design system, including the mandatory requirement of the Content and Information Architecture (C&IA) Specification. Government of Canada departments and agencies can contribute additional patterns and templates via GCWeb github repository.

Found an C&IA implementation issue or you want to contribute at their development, let us know by submiting GCweb issue, sending pull request or by participating at one of our weekly WET office hours (formerly known as WET-BOEW code sprint) every Tuesday.
