Footers

Footers serve site visitors who arrive at the bottom of a page without finding what they want.

Best practices

  • Footer links should point to popular content that might answer a visitor’s remaining questions. Links to disclaimers and legal content sometimes need to be in the footer, but try to minimize this where possible.
  • How links are organized in the footer does not have to mirror top-level header navigation.
  • Important contact information should be limited to general email, phone numbers, and one physical address.

The global footer is intended for use on all pages within the City of Winnipeg public website. They are available in English and French.

The global footer includes:

  • Organized columns of important links
  • Links to the social media directory
  • General contact information
  • Links to important policies and terms & conditions
  • A link to 311

See our basic page example and basic French page example for the global footers in use.
