About Us

Deaf & Hear Alberta (formerly Deaf and Hard of Hearing Society) is a charitable non-profit organization.

We are dedicated to addressing the accessibility, advocacy, education and communication needs of the Deaf, deafened, and hard of hearing populations of Alberta. With our head office in Calgary, Alberta and a second office in Edmonton, we excel at communication access through interpreting; consultation, assessments and providing the latest in assistive equipment; training and education for hearing loss prevention and management; and improving public awareness and understanding.


We enhance the lives of Deaf, deafened, and hard of hearing persons by removing barriers and building bridges to communication.


We envision a world free of communication barriers for the Deaf, deafened, and hard of hearing.
