About us

The Hearing Foundation of Canada was established more than 30 years ago, when a small group of passionate and committed individuals felt that there was a need for a national hearing health organization that focused on funding medical research, public education programs and advocacy. The Hearing Foundation of Canada was incorporated as a charitable, not-for-profit organization in 1979.
