The Business Enrichment Grant further strengthens our commitment and continued support to Independent Eye Care Professionals across Canada and aligns with our vision of supporting future Opticians.
The Optical Group, in collaboration with the Opticians Association of Canada, is offering a three-year Business Enrichment Grant for one Independent Optician and one student in their employ.
This Grant will cover the four (4) semester Eyeglasses Program, the two (2) semester Contact Lens Program, and associated application fees, tuition fees and text books for one student employed by the Optician.
