Canadian Hearing Society

The Canadian Hearing Society provides services that enhance the independence of deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people, and that encourage prevention of hearing loss.

The Canadian Hearing Society was incorporated in 1940 to impartially serve and support deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people, parents of deaf and hard of hearing children and to educate the hearing public.

Canadian Cultural Society of the Deaf

The Canadian Cultural Society of the Deaf was developed to allow Deaf people to work together for Deaf people. The primary goals are to ensure that ASL and LSQ continue to flourish as languages and to promote Deaf culture.
