If you are bilingual and have a desire to become a spoken language interpreter, this Language Interpreter program can help you develop the skills to interpret in a variety of legal, health care and social sectors in Ontario, for the thousands of immigrants who access these services yearly.
- Students must possess an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent.
- Students must be fluent in reading, writing, speaking and understanding English and a foreign language.
Trained language interpreters usually work as self-employed contractors who offer their services on a part time basis in various setting including health care, social services and the legal system.
In cooperation with the offices of Information Niagara-Hamilton, trained interpreters’ names are entered into a provincial data base which connects them with partnering agencies throughout the province of Ontario.
