Founded in 1940, CHS is a not-for-profit agency and the leading provider of essential services and information that remove communication barriers, advance hearing health and promote equity for culturally Deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people. CHS is governed by a Board of Directors, the majority of which are Deaf, deafened or hard of hearing. Unique to the CHS, services are offered in four languages, English, French, American Sign Language, and la Langue des signes québécoise. When necessary, cultural translators for other languages are also utilized.

CHS offers a roster of essential services including speechreading training, hearing testing, hearing aid evaluations, workshops, residential and workplace assessments, consultations and referrals, and a complete range of communication devices to augment safety and independence. Other services include individual, family and couples counselling, advocacy to increase the accessibility of government and community services, ASL training, Interpreting, and employment services.
