The Infant Hearing Program is delivered through 12 Lead Agencies in the province of Ontario. IHP Lead Agencies are responsible for delivering the program in accordance with provincial guidelines in a manner which reflects regional and local needs. Infants have their hearing screening done by the Lead Agency corresponding to their home address in most cases. In some instances this may be a different Lead Agency if they are admitted to a hospital in another Lead Agency jurisdiction (ie baby lives in Kingston but is admitted to the Hospital for Sick Children).
