About

Welcome to CHIP

CHIP, the acronym for Communicaid for Hearing Impaired Persons, is a non-profit registered charity serving the anglophone community affected by hearing loss in and around Montreal. This grassroots organization was built through the efforts of countless volunteers working thousands of hours over the last 35+ 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 issues often experience in their daily lives. It was this dedication to see improvement in the quality of life that gave birth to CHIP, an organization that stands by the hard of hearing community in Montreal.

Serving the hard of hearing English-speaking community since 1979
