The Sudbury Branch offers a number of workshops and presentations in Sudbury and across North Eastern Ontario. These workshops are designed to help people with hearing loss become more informed about hearing loss, how to live, work and cope with it. They are also a wonderful resource for family and friends of those with hearing loss. In fact, anyone interested to learn more (i.e. health professionals, co-workers, employers) will find these workshops to be an excellent resource.
Our workshops have become very popular, often resulting in waiting lists of people who want to participate. Check out our calendar of events on the home page frequently for announcements of upcoming events and workshops or consider becoming a member of CHHA and you will receive a notice via mail or email.
