CLF update – Jan. 6, 2017

On January 6, 2017, an update to the CLF will be deployed through the CDN (the CLF’s content delivery network) that will remove the UBC 100 logo from the CLF header and also remove reference to “a place of mind” in the CLF footer.

What will the changes look like?



What do I need to do?

For the vast majority of website owners, there will be nothing you need to do to be updated to the latest version of the CLF – the changes will be made to the core assets of the CLF that are centrally hosted on the CLF’s content delivery network. If your website is fully compliant with the baseline required elements of the CLF, your website will be updated automatically. If your website is detached from the core assets hosted on the CDN, you may need to make updates to the CLF elements in your website template for the changes to take effect. If this is the case for you, please contact the Digital Communications team at

Is this the new CLF?

No. This change is an update to the existing version of the CLF, v7.

When will the CLF be updated again?

Work is currently underway to plan the next major version of the CLF. Communications and Marketing’s Digital Communications team is working closely with IT Web Services and CTLT to create a roadmap for this next major release, timing for this next release is still TBD. Until this next major version is released, there may be additional minor version updates as due process for general maintenance. It is not anticipated that these minor version updates will require any updates to be made by website owners at the local level.

What if I find a bug with the latest release?

While the latest changes will have gone through a QA process, there is always a risk of unforeseen impacts to UBC websites, particularly those with custom design styles or modifications made to the HTML structure of the CLF components. If you notice any problems with your site, please contact the Digital Communications team at
