Breaking Barriers contest winner: Jacki Andre July 30, 2018

In the Spring of 2018, the Canadian Hearing Society launched a new contest and fundraising initiative called Breaking Barriers. The contest encouraged people to submit a personal story of how they’re breaking down barriers for Deaf and hard of hearing Canadians.

This year, our grand prize winner was Jacki Andre. Read her inspiring story below – and stay tuned for more information on next year’s Breaking Barriers campaign soon!

My amazing summer job experience at CHS July 30, 2018

When I saw the posting for summer jobs at the Canadian Hearing Society (CHS) on Indeed, I had never heard of CHS before. I am so grateful that I was given this opportunity as I have learned so much in eight weeks. The first few weeks I spent researching various issues relating to mental health in the Deaf community. I joked that my “mind was being blown,” but it was the truth.

Why we gave a Gift of Gratitude to CHS July 26, 2018

By Jordana Sheps and Kevin Greenglass

When our son, Jacob, was diagnosed with hearing loss at three months old, we were concerned about what this might mean for him in the future. Luckily, we were connected with Almut Vogel, a speech-language pathologist at the Canadian Hearing Society (CHS), for weekly speech therapy.

The last name “Eaton” is synonymous with philanthropy, thanks, in part, to the generosity of the John C. and Sally Horsfall Eaton Foundation. The Foundation is fronted by philanthropist and former businessman John Craig Eaton II and his wife Sally Horsfall Eaton. Through their combined efforts, the Foundation provides financial support to organizations from a variety of sectors, including health, education, and arts and culture.

Where are they now?: Employment Services client Erin Burrell April 6, 2018

By Erin Burrell

Hi, remember me? I’m Erin. Four years ago, I shared a story about how I was humiliated at my first job by being required to wear a vest with extra large letters on the back declaring “I AM DEAF” as a “safety” requirement for my employer. At the time, the Canadian Hearing Society assisted me in resolving this matter. Soon after, again with CHS’s assistance, I obtained an exciting new job at a daycare centre.
