About ATIA

The Association of Translators and Interpreters of Alberta (ATIA) is the only association of certified translators and interpreters in the province of Alberta. Founded in 1979, ATIA certifies translators and interpreters by facilitating national examinations as the provincial member of the Canadian Translators, Terminologists and Interpreters Council (CTTIC). Through CTTIC, the Association is also affiliated with the International Federation of Translators (FIT).

The ATIA vision is to elevate the professions of interpreting and translating in the province of Alberta by applying high standards of national certification, implementing a rigorous Code of Ethics which protects clients and professionals, providing unique opportunities to members for professional development and community service, and establishing an excellent platform for connecting clients with the translation and interpretation professionals they need.

Members of ATIA are represented and served by an Executive Council, which is elected at the Annual General Meeting.
