- Deaf people who use ASL as their primary language are the largest unreached linguistic-cultural people group in North America.
- ASL is not simply a signed version of English and is referred to as “interpreted” and not “translated."
- Hearing loss is one of the most widespread chronic conditions facing Canadians. According to a recent Canadian Health Measures Survey, about four million people in Canada are living with hearing loss. Forty percent of adults aged 20-79 have slight hearing loss in one or both ears.
