Medical Interpreting Services in BC


Dear members of our Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Interpreting and Medical Services Community in BC,

The Western Institute for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (WIDHH) is the provider of Medical Interpreting Services (MIS) for BC. For the past several years, services for MIS on Vancouver Island has been subcontracted to the Island Deaf and Hard of Hearing Centre (IDHHC) in Victoria and we thank them for their services to the MIS program.

Starting Tuesday, July 3, 2018 at 8:00am all MIS services will be provided through the WIDHH Vancouver office. This will help to create consistency in services across all regions and improve our medical interpreting services across the province.

Please do not hesitate to contact Tim Mallach, WIDHH Head of Interpreting Services with any questions or concerns, email tim.mallach@widhh.com or text 905-299-2696.



BC Rockies Deaf and Hard of Hearing Ice Hockey Team

My name is David McGregor, I volunteer for the BC Rockies Deaf and Hard of Hearing Ice Hockey team.  We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting a development camp for hockey players of all ages, gender and skill level.  This will be provided to all hearing levels as we welcome a fully inclusive environment for our players.  This is a safe place to learn to play or push your game to the next level.
Additionally, to get you an idea of our success we’ve had this year: we sent two teams to Winnipeg to compete at the Canada Deaf Games.  Both teams had a mix of deaf and hard of hearing players.  Our teams came second and third!  We look forward to building off this success and pursue our goal for gold.  At the same time, we enjoy the social environment with all of our deaf and hard of hearing players.
Here’s a short video highlighting two of our leaders who would be involved in the camp:
Please do not hesitate to contact me or Shawn Mayzes for more information.

Thank you!
