From the CHHA National’s Head Office to the “DTC Call to Arms”


MP Peter Julian, NDP-Burnaby-West, has tabled Bill C-577 – An act to amend the Income tax Act (hearing impairment). The purpose of the Bill is to clarify the terminology used that currently confuses the authorizers able to sign the DTC forms.

The Canadian Hard of Hearing Association (CHHA) along with its partners the Canadian Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (CASLPA), the Canadian Academy of Audiology (CAA), and VOICE for Hearing Impaired Children have been working to correct this iniquity but WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Tell your Member of Parliament how important it is for you or your family member to obtain the Disability Tax Credit. If you are receiving it already tell your MP that you support the Bill and you hope that they will support it on behalf of Canadians with hearing loss.

Email, call, fax or visit your Member of Parliament to ensure that this Bill is taken seriously and passes all readings in the House. Please cc us on all your emails, inform us of your visit or telephone calls, and send us copies of your letters. Send to Visit the CHHA website for background information and links to obtain your MPs name and coordinates as well as a link for Canada’s media.

Its time for action…
Its time to let your voice be heard…
Its time to give visibility to this unseen disability!
