Maple will provide you access to highly qualified sign language interpreters across Canada who can be scheduled to appear at your location. Available language option are American Sign Language (ASL-English) and Langue des signes du Québec (LSQ-French).
Who We Work With
Maple work with professional sign language interpreters who are members of the Association of Visual Language Interpreters of Canada (AVLIC), a professional association in Canada, and members of Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID), a professional association in the United States. All interpreters are bound by the code of conduct covering confidentiality, ethics, neutrality, professionalism, and dispute resolution. Deaf Interpreters (DI) are available to assist deaf individuals who have limited language acquisition, are foreigners, or possess a unique dialect of a regional sign language.
Where in-person interpretation is unavailable, our Video Remote Interpretation (VRI) services, which will allow you to make scheduled or on-demand calls to reach interpreters anytime 24/7/365 by using a web-enabled device with webcam and high speed Internet.
