My name is Chantal Pierre and I'm a new part of the Ai-Media team here in Canada.


I'm excited for this opportunity to provide closed captions for Deaf and hard of hearing people. 

I majored in French Studies at York University in Toronto.

I'm excited for this opportunity to help Deaf and hard of hearing people have access to services like school work and the movies. It is very important for all of those to have closed captions for access for Deaf and hard of hearing people.

I hope in the future there will be captions on everything
