Hear Entendre Québec’s Vision

Our vision is a community where we can hear, be heard, and thrive!

Hear Québec is the only non-profit registered charity serving the anglophone community affected by hearing loss in Québec. We’ve grown over the last 40 years and have been completely volunteer driven for 35 years by people with hearing loss. This dedication to see improvement in the quality of life of those with hearing loss is what gave birth to this organization that stands with the hard of hearing community. Making the most of the hearing we have is at the very core of everything we do.

Many of our staff, board of directors, volunteers, and stage students are affected by hearing loss. We understand and are concerned with the struggles that people with hearing difficulties often experience in their daily lives. Hear Québec strives to bring about awareness within the community and shed light on the invisibility of hearing loss. We offer an array of programs and services to those affected by hearing loss, as well as the greater community. Our programs include multiple Speechreading (lipreading) classes, Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) Programs, one-on-one support services, and Outreach (awareness) Programs.
