Association Name Change: Update










Greetings Membership,


In keeping with our ever-evolving profession, our national organization, Association of Visual Language of Interpreters of Canada (AVLIC), is undergoing an exciting transition. As you may know AVLIC will soon be renamed ‘Canadian Association of Sign Language Interpreters (CASLI)’. It is imperative, as a collective membership, to remember that prior to this change taking effect a legal process is required. Our new name, CASLI, will officially be unveiled at our next biennial conference, July 2018, in Niagara Falls, Ontario. In the meantime, please continue to refer to the association as AVLIC.


AVLIC’s rebranding includes a new name and a new look. As a committee, the Name Change Taskforce, we are working on a process to determine a new logo with your help! Stay tuned for further updates regarding this process.


If you have any questions or concerns regarding this process, please direct them to the committee via our board liaison, Sheila Keats, AVLIC Second Vice President, at
