Who we are
Interpreters at heart, we’re passionate about our work and inspired by the Deaf community.
In 1997, we saw a gap in the quality and availability of sign language interpreting services in the Ottawa area. Determined to provide better opportunities for interpreters and better access for the Deaf community, we decided to pool our resources.Learn more about how we got started
