About the Author

Founded in 1989, MCIS Language Services has been pursuing its vision to remove language barriers. Over the years MCIS has evolved into a model social enterprise providing interpretation, translation and transcription projects in over 200 languages. MCIS' growth into a successful organization with its commitment to bottom line objectives - sound finances, protection of human rights and diversity - has been the direct result of competent staff, exemplary leadership on its Board and the contribution of volunteers and interns.
We take pride in MCIS' growth and its commitment to recruit highly qualified new immigrants and local language professionals thereby increasing Toronto's and Canada's visibility as a multilingual hub that can provide language services to the globe.
