Above all, the Ottawa Area Cochlear Implant Support is a place to give and receive support from other cochlear implant recipients, prospective recipients and their family and friends. We meet regularly from September to May each year to share experiences, ask questions and learn from each other. Meetings are live captioned, so no matter where you are on your hearing journey, you can understand and participate. In addition to regular meetings, we sometimes plan special events.

Here’s our schedule of upcoming meetings and events:
