HearingLife Canada, ListenUP! Canada & their National Affiliated Partners are proud to provide exclusive hearing health care benefits to members of The Royal Canadian Legion.
Legion members will receive an additional 10% off the regular price or limited time promotional price of select hearing aids. They receive up to 2,000 AIR MILES® Reward Miles with the purchase of select hearing aids, five years of complimentary batteries and a three-year product warranty. Members can register for benefits at www.HearingLifeAdvantage.com/Legion.
HearingLife is the largest hearing healthcare network throughout Canada totaling over 300 clinics nationwide and growing daily in key geographies. The HearingLife network currently consists of 22 different brands that Legion Members will identify with no matter where they reside! All HearingLife network experts share the same mission, which is to provide expert hearing health services and education to all Canadians.
Hearing loss is one of the most prevalent health issues facing older Canadians, and also one that is misunderstood and often times ignored. Did you know? Stats Canada says, “Hearing loss strikes 1 in 5 Canadians and 47% of those individuals are over the age of 60.” The silent impact of hearing loss far exceeds the condition itself and research continues to show the link between an untreated hearing loss and certain age-related conditions including cognitive decline.
Our Clinical team, comprised of Audiologists and Hearing Instrument Specialists are pleased to provide all Legion Members and Canadians over 60 years with a free baseline hearing test. No referrals are required and a thorough hearing health exam only takes 60 minutes. Early detection may not prevent hearing loss, but it can help reduce some of its negative effects and resolve existing issues.
HearingLife Professionals offer expert hearing health exams, hearing aids, personal communication devices and protective options. Our team works with the world’s leading manufacturers. That means Legion members will have unparalleled access to world class technology and clinical expertise with the only truly national and comprehensive hearing healthcare company in Canada.
As a member of The Royal Canadian Legion, you and the members of your household are eligible to receive exclusive benefits towards the cost of hearing aids and hearing assistive devices outlined below. We hope you will take advantage of this partnership and all the benefits HearingLife offers, including our Don’t Worry Be Happy Guarantee™, in-clinic financing, and AIR MILES® reward miles.

RAPS Animal Hospital
The Regional Animal Protection Society (RAPS) is a non-profit, animal-serving agency providing care to animals in British Columbia. A year ago, we opened the RAPS Animal Hospital. This full-service, not-for-profit veterinary facility is truly community-owned and operated. Our bottom line is not profit … it is making animal healthcare more affordable for B.C. residents and, where required, providing them with assistance programs. This also helps RAPS save and improve the lives of as many animals as possible in our shelter and Canada’s only cat sanctuary.
A key part of our mandate is partnering with numerous groups in the province to offer affordable, not-for-profit animal healthcare. In addition to setting our standard treatment rates below most other veterinary facilities, we have extended VIP memberships to anyone who has rescued an animal from a shelter, seniors, first responders, nurses, people living in social housing, homeless people who have animals, people receiving social assistance, students, teachers and others – including members of the British Columbia/Yukon Command of the Royal Canadian Legion.
We are happy to have BC & Yukon Legion members enjoy a 25% OFF VIP card, which also provides your members with 40% off dental cleanings.
In addition, we are happy to provide every Legion member one of our Gold Tickets which provides a free exam on their first visit (a savings of about $50).
