There are many ways to translate a given sentence in a specific language combination and they may all be right. But, which ones are more acceptable within the Canadian / CTTIC context? This is an interactive workshop where the facilitator (a certified translator) and participants will have a text to translate before they come to the workshop. Participants will give their version of the translation of each sentence and get the perspective of the facilitator, who will elaborate on common issues.

Immigrants will comprise growing share of Canada’s population by 2036
The results of population projections presented in two new Statistics Canada reports reveal that the proportion of immigrants in the Canadian population could continue to increase until 2036 and could be almost twice as high as in 1871. As a result, the country's language and ethnocultural composition would change in all the scenarios selected.
Nearly one in two Canadians could be an immigrant or the child of an immigrant by 2036
According to the report Immigration and Diversity: Population Projections for Canada and its Regions, 2011 to 2036,* if current immigration levels continue in the coming years, the proportion of immigrants in Canada's population could reach between 24.5% and 30.0% in 2036, compared with 20.7% in 2011.
The projected increase in the proportion of immigrants could affect the future proportion of the second-generation population — the population with at least one parent born abroad. In all scenarios, nearly one in five people (19.7%) would be second generation in 2036, up from 17.5% in 2011.
Immigrants and second-generation individuals combined, who represented 38.2% of Canada's population in 2011, could account for nearly one in two people (between 44.2% and 49.7%) in 2036.
