Dear DeafBC.ca readers,
We learned that the Deaf Okanagan/Thompson Communities are involved in launching a Medical Interpreting Service (MIS) poster as announced in DeafBC.ca on November 29, 2016.
This is an unauthorized use of the name of our service, Medical Interpreting Service, at the Western Institute for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Through this DeafBC.ca broadcast, we are announcing that we are not involved in it at all, and are telling these deaf communities to remove the name immediately and to publicly announce through DeafBC.ca that they are not associated with us at all.
Questions about this matter should be directed to the Okanagan Valley Association of the Deaf or my office. The OVAD is not involved in this poster.
Janice Lyons, Department Head
