Our Interpreters bridge the linguistic and cultural barriers between the Deaf (who use American Sign Language or a variation) and hearing audiences (who use English). DHHS provides highly skilled and qualified American Sign Language interpreters, primarily in Calgary and Edmonton.
All Deaf and Hear Alberta interpreters are required to complete additional competency testing in addition to their formal training, as well as maintaining active membership in their professional association. Deaf and Hear Alberta interpreters adhere to a professional Code of Ethics which requires that they protect confidentiality and demonstrate the highest professional standards of practice.
Generally, Interpreting Services are provided on a fee-for-service basis. Fees are typically not charged to the Deaf, deafened, or hard of hearing individual.
