ABOUT APDA

APDA is a community-based organization whose mission is to promote social inclusion of people living with hearing impairment by providing help and support services, rights advocacy and awareness-raising activities.
For example, we launched the project “Où sortir sans limites ?” in which we review and list public places such as restaurants, hospitals, movie theatres, etc. that are accessible to hearing-impaired people. We also organize fitness activities, coffee meetings centred on lip reading, group discussions and conferences on Meniere’s disease and various hearing loss subjects, as well as occasional brunches and festive activities.

HEARING AIDS RECYCLING SERVICE (D’une oreille à l’autre)

APDA doesn’t cover costs for hearing aids, but offer recycled hearing aids with “D’une oreille à l’autre” service. These aids are cleaned and repaired in a certified recycling centre, as well as verified by audioprosthetists. Please note that there is no warranty on these hearing aids and that there are some eligibility criteria.
 

These hearing aids are given to those who are not 100% insured by public or private insurance, for instance the Quebec Health Insurance plan (RAMQ) who only covers one hearing aid for retired or unemployed individuals even if they have hearing loss in both ears.
 

The service has a waiting list and works with what we call “missions”. Missions are days we schedule to meet with our audioprosthetist and audiologist partners to take ears prints of the hearing-impaired, to do a couple of tests and to decide which hearing aid suits the person better. 

 

If you live in an area outside of our missions’ locations, you’ll have to register and find a way to travel toward the closest mission’s location.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

You need to find an interpreter to communicate with us. It is very important to do so, as our service manager needs direct contact (email or phone calls) to verify your eligibility, clarify certain information, plan adjustments and meetings with our volunteer team of audioprosthetists and audiologists.
 
Your interpreter must be someone you see often, someone who will be able to reach you easily or who know enough of your personal details to be able to answer our questions. It can be a family member, a friend, a social worker, etc.
1.  Be a senior (65+).
2. Have hearing impairment.
3. Have low income (proof is mandatory).
4. Be a member of APDA. ($10) 
5. Meet financial barriers for the purchase of auditory equipment.
