Visual (sign) language interpreting

I am a student and I need interpreters and/or transcribers.  How does that work?

Be sure to make your requests as early as you can, as scheduling takes considerable time and planning.  

All interpreters and transcribers are hired and assigned based on their experience, education, suitability and availability.

Who pays for it?

You’ll apply for a grant to cover all or a portion of the interpreting and/or captioning costs with permanent disability grants. The university covers the remaining costs. 

Contact calfrontdesk@uvic.ca for more information on interpreters and transcribers.
