New Year, New Format

After a year hiatus, we’re back and promise this will be one of the best CHHA Educational Conferences and Trade Shows ever!  Partnering with our partners in Montreal, QC, CHIP, we are putting together one of the most educational and social events for people with hearing loss in Canada.

Traditionally, CHHA Conference have focused only on issues related to hearing health and hearing healthcare.  This year, we want to spice things up as people with hearing loss have expressed a desire for us to expand our education program as the CHHA Educational Conference and Trade Show is the only fully communication accessible event they can attend without barriers. This year we are expanding our educational program to cover more topics outside of hearing health and hearing healthcare and have designed a program and hope to attract speakers to present on a variety of topics, including:

  • Hearing Health & Hearing Assistive Technology
  • Healthy Living & Aging
  • Smart Technology & Digital Literacy
  • Network Capacity Building*

*These are peer-to-peer workshops to share and transfer knowledge within the CHHA network, focusing on network development, membership, programs and services, and more!

Communication Access

CART/captioning, hearing loops will be in use during all workshops and plenary sessions. Sign Language Interpretation will be available for all plenary sessions and the Closing Banquet and Awards Ceremony.   You may request Sign Language Interpreters for specific workshops by emails by May 1, 2019.

“One of the things about hearing loss is that it isolates you from people and in order to feel confident in ourselves it helps to form strong bonds with other people who are in the same shoes.” Conference delegate, BC 2017
