What Is the Translation and Interpretation Program (TIP)?

The Translation and Interpretation Program (TIP) acquires registered approved volunteer interpreters, to provide services to limited English proficiency clients of Regina Open Door Society (RODS) and other community agencies.  TIP volunteers may enable clients to connect and access settlement-related services (i.e. Life Skills, Child Care Employment Services, Financial Services, Health Care Services, School Programs, Community Connections, etc.)

Translation (written)-Discontinued
