Results of Disability White Paper Consultation

From Marilyn Dahl,
CHHA-BC President

On June 17, 2014, the BC Government released their TEN YEAR ACTION PLAN TO MAKE BC THE MOST ACCESSIBLE PROVINCE IN CANADA. It includes items such as the building code, architectural access in public places, accessible homes and more. We will need to ensure that needs of the people with hearing loss are adequately included.

Recommendations for Hearing Accessibility in BC

On April 26th, CHHA-BC Chapter, in cooperation with CHHA Vancouver and North Shore Branches, hosted an open public forum on Hearing Aid Costs and Concerns:What Consumers Need. It was well attended with good audience participation. It was also video-recorded and when the video has been captioned, we will give you the link to view it online.

Below is the document (both in Word format and PDF format) containing the Resolutions which were formulated following the Forum, and which have been sent to those listed in the covering letter.

To learn more about followup actions to the Resolutions and other matters, do attend the CHHA-BC AGM and World Cafe on Saturday, June 7th. Contact for details.

Marilyn O. Dahl
CHHA-BC President
