We are CanTalk

CanTalk understands language, culture and dialects. It’s our business. Backed by 25 years of cultural and language service delivery experience in many formats and venues, CanTalk is both a language service and technology provider. The company is located within the historic Exchange District in Winnipeg, MB, an ethnically diverse city. All of CanTalk’s administrative offices and its technical centre are located here on a single site. CanTalk was the first Canadian company to provide IMMEDIATE over the phone and contact centre language and cultural support (services) for the business community.
The service was founded by Maureen Mitchells, a woman who saw the positive and lasting impact of language and cultural barriers when they are acknowledged and accommodated. Working in the international grain industry, she experienced first-hand the deep relationships that form when English is not imposed on potential customers. Today, that truism remains steadfast in every facet of business, people live and think in their native language ... if you want to communicate, and have people truly relate to your products and services, speak their language.
