The Association of Translators and Interpreters of Saskatchewan was incorporated in 1980 with the aim of fostering and promoting translation and interpretation in the province. It is a non-profit professional association and an affiliate of the Canadian Translators, Terminologists and Interpreters Council (CTTIC).
The Association of Translators and Interpretors of Saskatchewan (ATIS) was formed by a group of Founding Members with a common interest in and concern for translation and interpretation. Their aim was to foster and promote these professions in the province and to provide representation from Saskatchewan on the national Canadian Translators, Terminologists, and Interpreters Council (CTTIC), a member society of the Fédération internationale des traducteurs (FIT).
