Provincial Hearing Aid Program (PHAP)

Individuals on low income may be eligible for hearing aid funding under the Provincial Hearing Aid Program.

To determine candidacy for this program, individuals must complete a financial assessment application through the Department of Advanced Education and Skills.

*Please note: While this application is used to assess candidacy for income support, it is also used to assess financial candidacy for other programs.  PHAP is one of those programs.

If you qualify for the Provincial Hearing Aid Program, hearing aids are provided through your regional public health audiology office.

For more information on accessing the Provincial Hearing Aid Program, please contact us.
