"You’ve helped me to feel validated as a human being with respect and support.  Thank you."

 -- A Guest, Homeless Connect Wellness Day 

The mission of the Vision Institute of Canada is to provide charitable clinical services to under-served communities and at-risk patient populations. The Vision Institute acts as a resource to health-care providers and social service agencies for patient care, education and research. Our programs are supported in part by OHIP payments and direct patient billing but the total cost of our programs exceeds those amounts. This FUNDING GAP is filled by generous donations from our optometric colleagues and corporate supporters.

Please make a donation to support our charitable clinical services so that we can continue to be a beacon of light to those who need our care.


The Board of Directors of the Vision Institute would like to acknowledge Optometry Giving Sight (OGS) and Alcon for their  grants and donations in support of our work.

The Board of Directors would like to express its gratitude to the following Vision Institute's 2021 donors:
