Our members are accredited by the Ministry of the Attorney General of Ontario (MAG).

PCIO, Professional Court Interpreters of Ontario, is a professional association of MAG accredited court interpreters.

PCIO was established in 2021. 

We are a diverse group of court interpreters in many languages. Our role in the justice system is mandated by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Section 14: ”A party or witness in any proceedings who does not understand or speak the language in which the proceedings are conducted or who is deaf has the right to the assistance of an interpreter”.


All of us bring to the courts not only professionalism and dedication, but a very specialized set of skills that sets us apart from all the others in the justice system.

We are fluent in English and/or French, and in at least one other language. We are versed in legal terminology, court procedures, and possess exceptional listening, comprehension and verbal skills that enable the free and accurate flow of communication in a court of law. Without us, persons who have limited proficiency in English or French, or fear complex legal terminology, would not be able to participate in their matters in court, and the courts would not be able to communicate with them. 

PCIO is a nonprofit association supporting MAG accredited court interpreters in Ontario. We are not an agency. All of our members are freelance interpreters. PCIO assumes no liability for the content of this website, and no liability for our members.
