Lily Bernstein was one of Hear Québec’s founding members and the first elected president. Lily had a dream for some time to provide help to hard of hearing people, through accessibility, information sharing and communication strategies.
Those affected by hearing loss require the initial support and ongoing resources/information in order to overcome the barriers that come with hearing loss and to fully incorporate themselves into society.
This is a platform where we share hearing health information through our social media platforms and website. This information directly affects people with hearing loss, such as:
Safety and Security campaign – how the hearing loss community can be safe and secure. For example, we provide information about Text 911, a free service available to all Canadians (registration required).
Digital (printable) resource materials – including Hear Québec’s bi-annual HEARHEAR magazine.
In person or online informational workshops about hearing health or various topics that can affect our members.
Support and Referral Services
We are currently developing a one-on-one peer mentoring support service for our members. This includes understanding your hearing loss, advice about how to gain access to services and getting answers to questions you may have about your hearing aids or assistive listening devices ALD(s). Many individuals with hearing loss need additional support. This additional support allows members to have any additional questions answered and information about the services available that may help them. If you are interested in getting together to discuss any questions you might have, please contact the office.
