Because it’s important that you understand all aspects of your fertility process, we partner with SIARI (Service d’Interprète, d’Aide et de Référence aux Immigrants) to give you access to interpreters who can accompany you to your appointments or translate certain documents: www.siari.org
SIARI works with a team of interpreters who speak some 20 different languages, including Arabic, Tamil, Russian, Vietnamese, Armenian, Hindi, Urdu, Tagalog, Bengali, Punjabi, Lao, Thai, Mandarin, Greek, Spanish, Persian, and Kannada.
The service is free for all immigrants who have lived in Québec for less than five years. Simply go to the SIARI office and pay a $5 annual fee, which entitles you to all the organization’s services (French and English courses, income tax clinic, commissioner for oaths, day camps, daycare, food bank, etc.).
The interpreters can meet you at your appointments (their travel expenses are covered). However, you must schedule your appointments between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., from Monday to Friday.
To make sure an interpreter is available to accompany you to your appointment, it’s best if you advise SIARI 48 hours in advance.
