Translation and Interpretation Program (TIP)

As of June 30th, 2016 the Regina Open Door Society will no longer be offering Document Translation or Notary Services

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Translation and Interpretation Program (TIP) at Regina Open Door Society (RODS) is committed to providing service for the different language speakers to enhance their adaptation experience in Canada. This is a voluntary based program where the interpreters provide their services to fill the gap that may hinder a recent immigrant’s adjustment experience.

TIP interpreters are all registered with RODS as a volunteer interpreter/translator and have gone through police verification and reference checks before being registered with Regina Open Door Society’s TIP program. TIP interpreters provide exceptional, professional interpretation services to RODS and are referred to different organizations within Regina and nearby areas for their interpretation needs.

Anyone fluent in English as well as a foreign language wishing to be an interpreter may contact RODS to express their interest.  The following languages are currently in great demand:
  • Burmese
  • Karen
  • Urdu
  • Somali
  • Turkish
  • Mandarin
  • Tagalog
  • Ukrainian
  • Vietnamese
  • Nepali
  • Tigrigna
  • Arabic
Applicants are required to meet the following criteria:
  • Fluency and proficiency in English and a foreign language
  • Must be eligible to work in Canada
  • Flexible Schedule
  • High School Diploma
  • Clear Criminal Record (no existing convictions)


Applicants will be volunteering with various people from different backgrounds. Volunteers must be accepting of diversity, as well as, respect others choices and opinions.

If you do not meet some of the criteria but would like to volunteer, please feel free to contact the TIP coordinator and request an appointment.

RODS is an organization that exemplifies diversity and the multicultural beliefs.  We are always eager to work with new individuals and volunteers to provide services for the immigrants. Come volunteer as an interpreter with Regina Open Door Society.
