Education Funds

VON Canada nurses and staff are committed to furthering their education and excelling in their professions. You can support their dedication by contributing to our education funds.

The Dr. Helen K. Mussallem Education Fund

Companion of the Order of Canada and Canada’s most decorated nurse, Dr. Helen K. Mussallem was  instrumental in reshaping Canadian health care. Her passion and relentless drive to improve nursing education have inspired to the creation of the Dr. Helen K. Mussallem VON Education Fund.

VON Canada staff members wishing to pursue further education are often limited by financial constraints. The goal of the Dr. Helen K. Mussallem VON Education Fund is to assist our employees in improving their knowledge and professional skills by helping them meet the tuition costs of continuing health education.
