About Hear Québec
Hear Québec is the only registered nonprofit organization in Québec which serves Anglophones affected by hearing loss. Hear Québec has been providing ongoing programs, services, and support to the hard of hearing community in and around the greater Montréal area since 1979 – over 40 years.
Many of our team and board members are people affected by hearing loss. We understand and are concerned with the struggles and the difficulties that people with hearing difficulties often experience in their daily lives. As a largely “invisible” disability, there are many “myths” and misconceptions about hearing loss. Our vision is a community where we can hear, be heard and thrive.
