building a better Ontario, one conversation at a time

The mission of the Ontario Council on Community Interpreting is to be the body that oversees and regulates the accreditation of interpreters working in the community and public service sectors in Ontario.  

 

The vision of the OCCI is an Ontario where everyone has equal access to public services regardless of the language they speak.

“OCASI affirms that immigrants and refugees to Canada should be guaranteed equitable access to all services and programs. OCASI strives to work with various groups such as the Ontario Council on Community Interpreting (OCCI) to support community capacity building in order to improve services provided to immigrants and refugees.
 

The majority of community interpreters are immigrant women. OCASI recognizes the importance of improving working condition standards for immigrant women in the community interpreter field.”
