Educational Support Services (ESS)

The Ontario Government, through the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, provides funding to support students with hearing impairments in their pursuit of post-secondary education. The Canadian Hearing Society (Toronto) administers the fund through a designated Coordinator and a College contact person. ESS can be contacted at (416) 964-9595.

Students must be taking part-time credit courses and require interpreter services (sign/oral), note-takers or other related accommodations. Also, they must not be receiving similar support from any other source.

The fund is established each fiscal year and is distributed on a "first come, first served" basis. Disability Services Office personnel should remain current regarding the necessary processes and procedures when accessing this on behalf of students with hearing impairments.
