The Winnifred C. Cory Award of Merit recognizes a hearing member of CHHA who has contributed outstanding service to the work of the Canadian Hard of Hearing Association at the National, Chapter (provincial/territorial) or Branch level.
Winnifred Cory spent all of her teaching life helping the deaf and hard of hearing. She was a founding member of the CHHA Branch in Saskatoon. She taught speechreading at branch meetings and encouraged the branch to carry out an “Outreach” project in order to reach the hard of hearing in Saskatoon and the surrounding district. Through her efforts many hard of hearing people and their spouses have received support and information of coping strategies and assistive listening devices to help them accept their hearing loss.
