Alternative Hearing Assistance Supplement
Effective April 1, 2017 the Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation (MSDSI) has introduced a $100 monthly Alternative Hearing Assistance supplement. The supplement was implemented following a human rights complaint supported by lawyers at the BC Public Interest and Advocacy Centre (BC PIAC). The supplement is available to eligible people with permanent profound hearing loss in both ears. Eligible people include those receiving Persons with Disabilities (PWD) and Persons with Persistent Multiple Barriers to Employment (PPMB) benefits, as well as Income Assistance recipients residing in special care facilities.
Applicants for the supplement must be assessed by an audiologist or hearing instrument professional to show that they cannot significantly benefit from a hearing instrument (hearing aid etc.) for the purposes of speech comprehension. People who have received a hearing instrument supplement in the past 36 months may not be eligible for this supplement.

Resource to Help Locate Walk-in Clinics in BC
Medimap is a Vancouver-based company that is using technology and partnering with health care providers to make clinic wait times easily accessible for patients. Their mission is to improve access to care for Canadians and contribute towards an overall better patient experience. The website allows you to search for wait times at nearby walk-in clinics to get faster access to care. You simply enter your city or address. Participating clinics will be listed in order of wait times. The website also advises people to contact their family doctor as the first course of action before visiting a walk-in clinic, as a family doctor is the most familiar with a person's medical history. They also caution people that the listed wait times are only estimates and can change rapidly. Walk-in clinics should not be used for medical emergencies. In these cases, a person should call 9-1-1.
