Promising Practices in the Delivery of Interpretation Services in Ontario
The content for Let’s Talk was developed in response to the needs and priorities identified through consultation with representatives from diverse human service organizations in Ontario. The consultation revealed that, despite the absence of specific legislation to promote the use of interpretation in human service delivery and the lack of funding for interpretation services, service providers across Ontario are finding creative ways to address language barriers in their communities.
This section presents several case studies, describing practices and/or strategies that are currently employed in Ontario to address language barriers to service delivery. We recognize that there are many more creative and interesting initiatives underway in the province, but did not have the capacity as part of this project to research and profile them here.
In this section you will find case studies describing how language barriers are being addressed throughout the province. The case studies profile:
- Large and small organizations
- Organizations from diverse human service sectors
- Individual organizations as well as networks of organizations
- A wide range of solutions, including:
- Cultural competency
- Professional interpretation
- Peer based initiatives
- Volunteer programs
We hope that you and your organization can draw upon these promising practices to address language needs in your community and meet your organization’s interpretation needs.
