Centralized Interpreter Services provides interpretation, document translation, and cultural insight services in more than 70 languages and dialects. The number of people immigrating to Alberta is steadily on the rise, and so are the difficulties that arise for the newcomer individuals and their families when language barriers or cultural gaps exist.
Professional interpretation and translation services allow individuals and families to have safe and equal access to information and essential services through removing language barriers. Both individuals and organizations can access interpreters and translators.

Our goal is to offer easy-to-access counselling services. That is why counselling is available on a drop-in basis, and the first session is always free. To remove financial barriers, subsidies are available for follow-up sessions. We adjusted to the COVID-19 pandemic by offering counselling sessions also online.
Our counselling services are funded by fees scaled to the income of clients, donors, and funders; The City of Edmonton - Family and Community Support Services and United Way of the Alberta Capital Region.
