Show your support for a national eye care strategy

This past June,  MP Judy Sgro (Humber River - Black Creek) introduced Bill C-284: An Act to establish a national strategy for eye care. The Bill aims to improve eye care and invest in vision research to address preventable blindness. As optometrists, your voice is important. Please join our call to action and help ensure this vision becomes a reality. 

Here's how you can help:
Send a pre-written email to your M.P. urging them to support a comprehensive National Eye Care Strategy and pass Bill C-284 through Parliament.

It takes just one minute to send an email. Help us prioritize eye care in Canada and to ensure healthy eyes and clear vision for all Canadians.
