2015 Advertising Campaign: “It’s My Privilege”

On May 4, 2015, Speech-Language and Audiology Canada (SAC) launched a new advertising campaign to raise awareness about communication health and the professions of speech-language pathology and audiology. The campaign includes two new touching advertisements, shown below, which are running in transit stations and vehicles in Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto for approximately six weeks.

BRAVE & LOVE

These BRAVE and LOVE advertisements are an extension of the wildly successful "Awe and Joy" campaign we launched in the spring of 2014. 

AWE & JOY

The AWE and JOY advertisements were featured in Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto last year and this year will run in transit vehicles and stations in Calgary and Halifax, also for approximately six weeks.

NATIONAL ONLINE AD CAMPAIGN

Our transit advertisements are accompanied by a country-wide online advertising campaign. Look out for our BRAVE, LOVE, AWE and JOY ads on Facebook and Google’s keyword search, no matter where you are in Canada!

 

Continuing the Conversation About Communication Health in Canada

The goal of this campaign is to help members of the public, government and media across Canada understand the importance of communication health and the work that speech-language pathologists, audiologists and communication health professionals do. Given that May is also Speech and Hearing Month, this is the perfect time to get people talking about #communicationhealth!

Here’s how you can get involved:

  • Share your story about the difference a communication health professional has made in your life. Send it to us via email, Twitter or Facebook and encourage others to do the same.
  • Print off the ads and hang them in your workplace.
  • If you live in Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto, Calgary or Halifax, take a "selfie" (photograph of yourself) next to one of our advertisements. Email it to us or post it on Twitter or Facebook and use the hashtag #communicationhealth.
