May 3, 2019

McGill University will be developing an online program in legal translation, which will expand the capacity of jurists and translators to offer justice services and information in both official languages. The program is supported by $329K in funding from the Federal Government’s Department of Justice Canada. “Legal translation is an indispensable component in providing equal access to justice in both official languages,” said Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada David Lametti, “I am proud to support an initiative that will improve access to justice for French-speaking and English-speaking communities across Canada and promote the development of our professionals."
