National Centre for Audiology

About Us

The National Centre for Audiology (NCA) was founded through an Institutional Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) grant (July, 1999), supplemented with Ontario Innovation Trust (OIT) funding (March, 2000) and significant donations from the private sector, with the vision of becoming a national centre of excellence and leadership in research in Audiology and hearing science. The NCA received a second round of CFI funding in November, 2006 to significantly upgrade the existing facilities, and to create several new laboratories. The Research Centre facilitates research excellence and innovation by bringing together the necessary human and laboratory resources to form collaborative groups with existing excellent researchers forming the core. [more]
