Sign The Petition
For A National Vision Health Plan

The Crisis is Urgent
We Have To Act Now

RIGHT NOW

Over 1.2 Million Canadians
Are Living with Vision Loss

With blindness in Canada costing a staggering 32.9 billion dollars annually, the burden of vision loss to individuals, communities, and our health care system is nothing short of extreme.

The growing crisis affects all Canadians – but youth, the elderly, and other vulnerable populations face the greatest risk. Without a government commitment for a national vision health plan, we’re at risk for a major healthcare emergency. Over 8 million Canadians are living with eye diseases that can lead to blindness. We must act fast to prevent blindness.

Together, we can demand action that prevents over 75% of blindness through accessible eye exams and equitable access to therapies.
