The Canadian Hard of Hearing Association (CHHA) Manitoba Chapter is a not-for-profit organization run by and for people who are hard of hearing.
CHHA Manitoba Chapter is committed to addressing the needs of people with hearing loss in Manitoba. All chapter work, including responding to inquiries, administration, financial management, event coordination, fund-raising, and web-site management is performed by volunteers. There are no paid workers. Telephone answering and mail services are contracted through the Society for Manitobans with Disabilities (SMD) Clearinghouse.
CHHA Manitoba Chapter works with government departments, businesses, healthcare and educational organizations to promote and support access to services for people with hearing loss. Our work focuses on increasing awareness of hearing loss with the hard of hearing population as well as in both the public and private sectors, and advocacy on behalf of hard of hearing Manitobans.
The Manitoba Chapter is part of the Canadian Hard of Hearing Association, the only national voice for hard of hearing Canadians. There are many provincial chapters and branches throughout Canada.
