Wavefront Centre Lend An Ear Program


We recognize that many individuals may not be financially able to purchase hearing aids. This is why as a charity, Wavefront Centre created our Lend An Ear Program.

Through donations of used hearing aids, government grants, and income from our hearing aid sales, Wavefront Centre offers a Lend An Ear Program which provides permanent loans of refurbished hearing aids for those who cannot afford new ones.

For a nominal fee of $140, an individual under the Lend An Ear Program can receive a hearing test, a permanent loan of one hearing aid, an earmold, and one-year of repair service.

“As a recipient of the Lend an Ear Program, I am so very grateful for friendly, expert advice, care and technical solution for my hearing loss. My life is much fuller for the ability Wavefront provided me to engage with people again. ” Valerie Harrison

We heavily rely on donations of used hearing aids to support this program. This means that there is usually a waitlist for the program and it also means that if you have a used hearing aid that you no longer need, we would greatly appreciate your donation of your used aid to the program and “lending an ear”!
