Projects

CHHA is continuously striving to seek innovative opportunities to bring the spotlight on the barriers facing those living with hearing loss. We have initiated and participated in various projects as part of our advocacy efforts.

Youth Perspectives:
Changing attitudes towards people with non-visible disabilities

Event held in November 2017 as part of the Spotlight on Invisible Disabilities Project

Panel Discussion with Disability Community: recommendations towards the new federal accessibility legislation

Event held in May 2017 as part of the Spotlight on Invisible Disabilities Project

SPOTLIGHT PROJECT

The Canadian Hard of Hearing Association and its 19 Spotlight Partners sought to consult and engage invisible disability stakeholders in Canada to provide information contributing to the development of federal accessibility legislation. The consultations reviewed current challenges and explored ways in which federal accessibility legislation can create an environment to provide all Canadians the resources to thrive as full participants in Canadian society.

BROADCAST ACCESSIBILITY FUND

The Canadian Hard of Hearing Association (CHHA) has developed a suite of resources to help people living with hearing loss, CHHA’s Chapters and Branches and the public recognize and use the accessibility features available, how they can get involved in improving upon current features, as well as opportunities for growth, links to resources and regulations.
