American Sign Language (ASL) is the primary means of communication for many deaf Canadians. Sign Language Interpretation stands apart from all common forms of language interpretation. In our effort to bridge language barriers, we have added to our roster American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation services.
Sign language interpretation consists of using hands and facial expressions to facilitate communication with hearing-impaired individuals and audience members and can take place anywhere and in a variety of settings. Often, event organizers are looking for ASL interpreters to ensure that hearing-impaired audience members have the best experience and feel included in all communications. To ensure the best experience, event organizers are often looking for interpreters who have obtained accreditation and are certified sign language interpreters.
We are happy to help you with finding a qualified ASL interpreter for your event. Contact us today!

One Sunday, he delivered a sermon to a deaf congregation on Wellesley Street in Toronto. He was struck when no one watched him as he spoke from the pulpit. Their eyes were fixated on the interpreter below.
