Developing relationships with hard to reach parents and caregivers to remove barriers for those needing service is an important part of this work.

The Family Centre’s Centralized Interpreter Service provides both interpretation and translation services to limited or non-English speaking individuals, on behalf of the organizations that request the service.
An interpreter is a bilingual/bicultural person who is trained to assist in the communication process between non-English speaking persons and English speaking service providers or organization representatives. The interpreter facilitates the cross-lingual/cultural process helping all participants involved to understand the beliefs and practices of each other relevant to the cultural and linguistic meaning of the interaction. The context is in the provision of public services, such as healthcare, community services, legal settings, social services, and educational institutions.
