Here is an update from the CBC on their ongoing initiative to make public radio accessible.

As you will have seen from the recent Canadian Administrator of VRS (CAV) announcement (cav-acs.ca/news) VRS in Canada is getting closer to being a reality. 

The AVLIC Board feels that this is an opportune time to draft a position paper on AVLICs perspective of VRS in Canada, including the importance of employing AVLIC members, certification of interpreters, health and safety of interpreters, fair employment practices etc.
