Shortage of Arabic, Kurdish and Assyrian Interpreters greater than expected in Canada
 
 
Canada will be welcoming 25,000 to 35,000 Syrian refugees over the coming months. The two top challenges are housing and the language barrier. There are not enough professional translators and interpreters in Canada to cover the language needs of these refugees.
 
As a Translation and Interpretation Service Provider, we envision a shortage of translators and interpreters in these languages. We commit to doing whatever is in our hands to support our clients to offer proper services to these new immigrants, however, our hiring standards (credentials required from our translators and interpreters) will remain the same (no hiring of non-professionals just to meet demand). We appreciate your understanding.

"Language Interpreter Award of Excellence” 
 
This year Humber College awarded its first “Language Interpreter Award of Excellence” to an outstanding student who graduated from the Language Interpreter Training Certificate Program. This is now a yearly award that will be presented at the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences annual Student Award Ceremony. The first recipient of this award was Julia Joy.  
 
When I began my career as a Spoken Language Interpreter, I was unsure about some aspects of my job and felt I could benefit from professional training.  I’m glad I chose Humber’s LITC program – I gained new skills that have served me well in many work situations.  Clients have expressed to me again and again how I have made a meaningful difference with the quality of my interpreting.  I now have greater confidence in my abilities and a strong professional network of friends from the LITC program.  Julia Joy, Humber LITP Graduate
