Auditory alarms, whether activated by heat, smoke, or toxic fumes, warn of imminent danger by sound. For customers or employes who are Deaf or have hearing loss, these life saving emergency notification measures fail completely. Systems that incorporate high-intensity flash/strobe lights that are strong enough to attract attention are essential to the safety of your customers or employees who may be deaf, oral deaf, deafened, or hard of hearing.

In-house Emergency Paging System

A wireless paging system, connected to your fire panel, immediately notifies users of emergency situations via a vibrating pager, or by sending a text message to LCD displays placed throughout your facility, keeping everyone in your place of business aware of emergency alerts.

Assistive listening systems include FM, Infrared or loop systems. They are designed to connect the sound from the main speaker, sound system or other audio source and send the signal directly to wireless receivers worn by people with a hearing loss. The receivers allow individuals to adjust the volume to a comfortable level and can be used with a variety of headsets, including neckloop listening accessories for those with telecoil equipped hearing aids. Assistive Listening systems help to reduce background noise and compensate for poor room acoustics or distance from the sound source. Assistive Listening Systems can be portable and/or permanently installed and are recommended for all meeting assemblies where people with a hearing loss are present including; tours, lectures, small to large meeting venues, classrooms, places of worship, courtrooms, and theatres.

Soundfield systems are portable sound systems which clearly amplify a presenters/teachers voice. Consisting of one or more microphones and one or more loudspeakers, Soundfield Systems provide even sound coverage within a room.

In the classroom, hearing is essential for learning. In meeting rooms, presentations are lost if they are not audible. Soundfield Systems provide the amplification you need, when you need it. It is the most flexible amplification solution for classrooms, boardrooms, nursing homes and small to mid-sized meeting rooms.

My name is Nguyet Duong-Seto and I am Deaf. I was born in Vietnam. I have 13 siblings, all who currently live in Vietnam, including two sisters and one brother who are also Deaf.

I first came to Canada from Vietnam after marrying my Canadian husband, who is also Deaf. I love Canada, but when I first arrived, English, American Sign Language (ASL) and Canadian culture were all unfamiliar to me. Thankfully, my husband introduced me to the Language Instruction for Newcomers to Canada program at the Canadian Hearing Society in Mississauga in 2008.

 

After a number of intense and productive days of negotiations, the Canadian Hearing Society and CUPE Local 2073 have reached a tentative settlement which both bargaining committees will be recommending to their principals.

Each of the committees worked diligently to modernize the language of the collective agreement and reach a deal of which they can be proud.  The union membership will hold their ratification meeting on the evening of Tuesday, June 26th

Even though hearing loss is one of the most common health conditions that affects aging adults, there are many myths and misunderstandings about it. Every May, CHS puts an extra focus on hearing loss awareness for Speech and Hearing Awareness Month. So, let’s take on the role of “mythbuster” and talk about the real facts of hearing loss.

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.

Among the groups receiving support this year is the Canadian Hearing Society, an organization that both namesakes of the Foundation have a connection to.
