Founded in 1982, the Canadian Hard of Hearing Association (CHHA) is the nation’s leading consumer organization representing the nearly four million Canadians living with hearing loss and their families.

What we do 

With a national network from coast to coast, CHHA works cooperatively with professionals, service providers, government, and others to provide life-enhancing information, support, and advocacy to ensure people with hearing loss are successful in overcoming any barriers in all areas of their lives.

The CHHA has a global reputation of developing and delivering a wide range of initiatives that have challenged the status quo when working with people with hearing loss. As a leader in the sector, we are sought after to provide guidance on various policy initiatives at all levels of government, to identify best practices, and to develop and test the technology, which in turn has advanced the quality of life for people living with hearing loss.

Visit the CHHA's website to learn more about the resources the CHHA can provide you and your family to help overcome the barriers associated with living with hearing loss, or to participate in upcoming educational events or locate a network in your community.
