NCVH is an organization of associations that share a common interest in eye care and vision research. The Coalition provides national leadership on Canada’s vision health issues and in the development of related public policy. NCVH accomplishes its goals through the mandates of its member associations by consultation, collaboration, advocacy, research, education and service. The Coalition believes that all Canadians are entitled to full and equal access to eye care.
The Coalition was established in 1998 as the result of a unanimous recommendation by delegates to the National Consultation on the Crisis in Vision Loss. The recommendation called for the establishment of a multidisciplinary group to identify priorities for improving vision health and promote and coordinate advocacy, education and information-sharing networks and initiatives, nationally and provincially.
