Vision Quest

Print Page

At Fighting Blindness Canada (FBC) we are motivated by a singular goal: develop new treatments for blindness and vision loss. This goal fuels all of the research we fund and everything that we do! Our educational programming provides exciting updates on vision research to patients and their families coast-to-coast.

Every year, we strive to share the latest breakthroughs in vision science directly with our supporters through our Vision Quest educational programming. In 2020, Vision Quest will take a variety of formats, hosted in regions across Canada.

COVID-19 Update

At FBC we have been closely monitoring developments of the COVID-19 outbreak. Due to the escalating situation, we have decided to cancel our educational events this spring, including Vision Quest Winnipeg, Vision Quest Edmonton. While disappointed, we feel strongly that we must prioritize the safety and health of our supporters and staff and hope that these measures will help in containing the spread of the virus.

We will continue to follow the situation, and if possible, we will explore rescheduling these events in the fall. In the meantime, we are exploring other options for patient education opportunities, including a national webinar to take place in the spring. We will provide more information about this as it becomes available.

Thank you for supporting our educational events and we appreciate your understanding. If you have any questions, please contact Morgan Ineson at mineson@fightingblindness.ca or 1-800-461-3331 x 258
