Carson Tiede - BSc., national board certified h.i.s., R.H.I.P., Owner
Carson Tiede grew up in western Ontario. His parents, Dieter and Nancy Tiede, opened their first Hearing Care Centre in 1985, and Carson witnessed firsthand what a rewarding career it was for them.
Upon completing his Bachelor of Science (BSc.) at the University of Guelph, Carson completed the Hearing Instrument Specialist (HIS) program at Conestoga College. Board Certified in Hearing Instrument Sciences (NBC-HIS), Carson has been in the industry since 2013. He has worked as a HIS in Alberta, and now has opened his own Hearing Care Clinic locations on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, that are registered with CSHHPBC.
Carson is committed to providing the best hearing care possible by combining advances in technology with individualized care. Carson approaches each client individually as each person and his or her hearing loss is unique. Difficult cases where other care providers have given up provide Carson the biggest challenge and the best reward when he works together with those individuals and uses the latest technology to find a solution that allows them to hear better.

Chris Tiede - bHsc., h.i.s., owner
Watching his parents Dieter and Nancy Tiede have a rewarding and successful career operating Hearing Care locations in western Ontario, Chris knew early on that he wanted to be a business owner while also being able to specialize in an industry that allowed him to truly help people.

As a business owner, Chris is responsible for managing all the business operations of his locations, including training all the staff to ensure that only the highest level of service and care is provided by every member of his team. The greatest reward for Chris, however, is always the ability to work one on one with his clients to truly make a difference in their lives by allowing them to hear again.

She quickly gained her Hearing Instrument Specialist (HIS) diploma from Grant MacEwan University and became a key member of the hearing care team at Hearing Care Clinics in Stouffville, Beaverton, Keswick, Whitby, and Port Perry, Ontario.
Diana deeply enjoys taking the time to get to know her clients to understand their lifestyles and experience, and she knows that this not only assists her in her job and achieving the best hearing results for her clients, but it also helps her learn more about herself and grow as a person. Taking the time to get to know the person, rather than just the client, is the gift that her career has given to her and that fuels her to continue to give back to her community by providing excellent service and care for every individual.
