Operating in the Ottawa region since 1979, Languages of Life Inc. was first established to serve the healthcare sector, but due to the needs of the multicultural community, it expanded to include social services, law enforcement, insurance and other sectors. Founder and Executive Director Bryna Monson is at the heart of the agency and has received many awards and distinctions throughout the years for her service to the Ottawa-Carleton area.

Languages of Life Inc. is proud to announce that Bryna has been awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal from the Governor General of the Government of Canada for her 33 years of service to the community. Our agency is very excited about this honour to both Bryna and our agency.
