Hearing induction loop devices are available in Council Chambers.

This system works through a handheld device where the sounds from the microphones are picked up and provided to the user through their hearing aid. The handheld device can be used by a person with a hearing aid by wearing the loop around their neck and turning on the device. We also have earbuds available for people who may struggle to hear but don’t have a hearing aid. For the earbuds, input the headphone jack into the handheld device and turn on.

Anyone looking to use the system can ask a staff member to set it up for them. To book the system in advance of a meeting, please contact info@easthants.ca or 902-883-6217.
