ABOUT THE CANADIAN HARD OF HEARING ASSOCIATION
The Canadian Hard of Hearing Association (CHHA) is the leading consumer advocacy organization representing the needs of the nearly 4 million Canadians living with hearing loss. With a network from coast-to-coast-to-coast, CHHA works cooperatively with professionals, service providers, governments, and others to provide life-enhancing information, support, and advocacy.
Established in 1982, CHHA has a global reputation for developing and delivering a wide range of initiatives that have challenged the status quo when working with people with hearing loss. We are sought after to provide comments and feedback on various policy initiatives, identify best practices, develop, and test technology, programs and services. Our initiatives have advanced the quality of life for people living with hearing loss.
Most direction and support to leaders is provided via electronic platforms. Many meetings require communication strategies, communication access support, and patience to effectively connect with those with hearing loss.
