What you might be asked:

  1. On a regular day, what does an interpreter assist you with?
  2. What difference does having access to interpreter services make in your life?
  3. Think about a day when you did not have access to an interpreter. How did you feel? What activities were you unable to do or participate in?

RSVP: If you are interested in participating, please RSVP to or call 416-212-7231 by October 12, 2017, so that we can confirm the number of participants. Details of the location will be shared with confirmed participants.
