«The purpose of the current study was to […] investigate the status of implementation of EHDI [Early hearing detection and intervention] programs in Canada; […] consider whether adequate programs were in place in 2018; and […] update the CIHTF [Canadian Infant Hearing Task Force] EHDI Report Card.» (p. 108)
«The survey link was sent via email (June 1, 2018) to individuals that the CIHTF believed had a significant role and responsibility in managing their province or territory’s EHDI program. The respondents for each province/territory were nominated within that region to respond to the survey.» (p. 110) «There were 19 survey respondents distributed across all 10 Canadian provinces and three territories.» (p. 115)

According to the authors, healthy hearing in children is important for a number of reasons, including for the well-being of the family. «Only six provinces or territories in Canada have EHDI programs that are considered sufficient based on the five components previously described: Alberta, British Columbia, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Ontario, and the Yukon. The remaining provinces and territories—Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nunavut, Prince Edward Island, Québec, and Saskatchewan—are considered insufficient despite some having localized or regional services.» (p. 116) «Support for families of infants identified as having permanent hearing loss is a vital part of any EHDI program […].» (p. 117) Some provinces and territories, including Québec, «do not have formal programs for family support. A lack of formal parent-to-parent support programs means that the managing audiologist will have to continue their support by connecting families with community resources that are not a formal part of their program.» (p. 118) «Research has unequivocally shown that, if not acted upon early in life, hearing loss in infancy can significantly impact speech, language, literacy, and social-emotional development and can have a wide range of potentially adverse effects on the family and society.» (p. 120)
