The Canadian Venous Thromboembolism Clinical Trials and Outcomes Research (CanVector) Network is a pan-Canadian, Community Development Program centred on venous thromboembolism (VTE) related research, training, and knowledge translation. Sandbox was privileged to work with CanVECTOR in building their new bilingual website.

  • Create a bilingual website available in both French and English
  • Provide a modern, responsive design
  • Effectively promote CanVECTOR research through social media channel integration

Solution was built using the OASIS CMS and has supports two separate versions of both English and French content. We used our experience in the healthcare sector to ensure an optimal information architecture, and produced a clean design with custom iconography for a visually appealing user experience. As a hub for information on VTE the website was equipped with a searchable document repository for items such as clinical trials and publications. Promotion of the work CanVECTOR does was also advanced through social media integration and event registration capabilities.


The new CanVECTOR website effectively promotes the research and members of the organization through news, events, publications and membership, in both English and French. With a small internal team of website administrators, OASIS' live editing make routine maintenance and content updates easy.

CanVECTOR contains separate language versions of the same website. This approach allows greater control and translation accuracy for content editors, and is particularly popular within the healthcare sector.

OASIS offers a drag-and-drop page layout management tool, and familiar "what you see is what you get" text editors, to empower non-technical users in managing their site content.

Our quality assurance process uses both human human and automated testing to ensure best practices are met. AODA and W3C testing are also crucial elements of this process, to ensure accessibility regulations are met or exceeded for the new website.
