Chair's Welcome

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Language Industry Association’s (AILIA) website.

For close to 10 years, AILIA has been mobilizing language industry stakeholders and is now on solid ground thanks to the active participation of its members.

Our mission is to promote the Canadian Language Industry as a whole and to develop sectorial strategies that promote the emergence of each of its components: Translation and Interpretation, Language Technologies and Language Teaching.

We are working hard to increase the credibility and competitiveness of this industry both in Canada and worldwide by fully assuming our role as spokesperson and by developing accreditation mechanisms, including standard CAN/CGSB-131.10-2008.

Visit us regularly. We will frequently add content that covers the industry's major issues. Whether you are interested in certification standards, what front-line stakeholders have to say about the industry’s current challenges or the news our members want to share, AILIA’s brand new site is sure to interest you.

I wish you an excellent visit!
