Do You Have Hearing Loss From Your Time In The Service?
Welcome To The Ear Depot | Conversation Made Easy
Providing Professional Hearing Testing since 1982

Veterans Affairs Canada Proudly Supports Better Hearing

If you have suffered hearing damage due to noise exposure while serving our nation, Veterans Affairs Canada will provide you with full hearing aid coverage.

The Process

There are certain standards held by VAC to ensure a hearing loss is in fact noise induced.

When you come in for your hearing test our specialists will guide you through the entire process.

We will help you determine what degree of hearing loss you may have, and discuss whether you may be eligible for compensation.

The Paperwork

At your hearing test appointment we will provide you with all the necessary documentation to apply for hearing aid assistance.

Our staff will guide you through each form and answer any questions you may have.

After everything is faxed in, we will keep you up to date with timelines and what to expect next.

A Quick Story On How We Began...

Working for over nine years as a Hearing Instrument Practitioner under the guidance of two exceptionally caring Hearing Clinics in both Peterborough and Toronto, Brenda saw firsthand what it meant to truly serve the needs of those dealing with difficulty hearing conversation.

And by 1991, felt it was time to open her own practice and provide the same level of care and passion she had been taught to give, within her hometown of Peterborough.

Over the past two and half decades The Ear Depot has grown incredibly strong, with several location expansions.

It’s influence continues to grow, as Brenda and all her staff hold firmly to the belief that when the best in hearing aid technology is combined with old fashioned, honest client care service, everyone wins!

Three Locations To Serve You Best

With locations in Peterborough, Bancroft and Barry’s Bay, we invite you to come visit us, and experience conversation made easy.

The entire team at The Ear Depot passionately share Brenda’s vision of helping people hear better, to live better.
