Quick Survey on Interpreters and Access

Hello BC Deaf community member,

I, and my co-worker Mia Gordon, have been contracted by Douglas College and Vancouver Community College to review the ASL/Deaf studies and the sign language interpreting education programs.

We value the opinion of the Deaf Community here in British Columbia on the quality of interpreters provided to you in your community. We hope that you can take 10 minutes and complete the survey so that your perspective is part of the information we are gathering.

Please be assured that the survey we are using will protect your privacy and we only will share the final results rather than any one response. We wish to thank you in advanced in participating in this survey. Please click on the link below and follow the instructions and the results will be returned to us.

If you have any questions or comments please do not hesitate to e-mail me at hardy63@live.com

Thank you,
