The Victorian Order of Nurses (VON) is a national, non-profit health organization and registered charity offering a wide range of community health care solutions. For 115 years, VON has pioneered health services in Canada, often being the first to identify emerging health and social needs, and then providing innovative services to meet those needs.
VON is committed to help people live independently in the community and have the best possible quality of life. With VON’s help, many elderly, ill, or disabled persons have been able to delay or avoid admission into an institution. People in hospitals have been able to return to their homes more quickly with VON support, and many a caregiver has been given the assistance and relief they need to continue caring for a loved one at home.
VON will be Canada’s leading charitable organization, addressing community health and social needs.
As a registered charity, VON relies on the support of generous people, families and organizations. Funds raised through donations, major gifts, and special events allow VON to continue to provide the community support services in our area.
