Facilitating Communication, Connecting People

Providing Professional Language Services Since 1994

At ITS we provide professional interpretation and translation services in the Fraser Valley region. We are a social enterprise and are deeply committed to the professional standards that guide the language industry.

As a branch of the Multicultural and Immigrant Integration Services Division of Abbotsford Community Services (ACS) , we were founded in 1994 and by 1998 implemented the first region-wide, comprehensive language service centre, providing both interpretation and translation services to meet the needs of the Fraser Valley Health Region. We pioneered an innovative, centralized approach that has been replicated province-wide.

For over two decades, we have been a community partner responsive to local needs. To meet that commitment to partnership, we have successfully maintained affordable rates while providing high quality services, supplying interpreters and translators to a broad array of community agencies and services including:

  • Correctional Institutions
  • Court Services
  • Police Departments
  • Community Correctional Services
  • WorkSafe BC
  • Health Authourities
  • Immigrant Service Organizations
  • Ministry of Children & Family Development (MCFD)
  • Insurance Corporation of BC (ICBC)
  • Fraser Valley Child Development Center (CDC)
  • Social Development Social Innovation (SDSI)
