SAC is dedicated to improving communication health in Canada. Communication health includes everything from speech, hearing and language to swallowing, balance and auditory processing.

SAC has worked to achieve high national standards of practice in speech-language pathology and audiology in Canada and maintains a strong tradition of collaborating with provincial and territorial professional associations and regulatory bodies as well as working closely with other health care partners.

SAC’s Recommendation:
