CHS Interpreting Services will work with you to have an interpreter either virtually (online) or in person.
Canada’s Supreme Court ruled:
Sign language interpreters must be provided in the delivery of medical services where doing so is necessary to ensure effective communication (Eldridge v British Columbia (AG), (1997) 3 SCR 624).
For hospitals, providing an interpreter for Deaf patients is a constitutional obligation.
