However, Jason has severe hearing loss in both ears due to a medical condition.

At his hearing test, his audiologist referred him to WorkBC Assistive Technology Services for help.

Praising the Assistive Technology Services staff as “helpful and professional,” Jason found the process easy, even amidst the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“They helped by providing funding to buy new hearing aids,” he says.

Jason says he would recommend the program to others in need.
