We Are Involved in the Community

Being involved in the communities we serve is a rewarding experience. We value supporting, educating, and helping those in our communities to take the necessary steps to improve their hearing healthcare.

We collaborate with Western University and Conestoga College as a teaching facility, providing clinical training and information to future and current hearing healthcare practitioners.

Did you know?

The process of hearing includes both the ear and the brain. The ear changes the sound vibrations into a signal that can be understood by the brain. The ear has three parts - the middle, inner and outer ear - and each part of the ear has a different job.

The vibration of the eardrum moves the three small bones (called ossicles) in the middle ear. Common names for the bones are the hammer, anvil, and stirrup. They are also known as the malleus, incus, and stapes. These bones amplify the vibration and transfer the sound waves to the inner ear (the cochlea). This is where the ear drum resides. Often, hearing loss occurs in the middle ear.
