Mission, Vision and Values

When Canadians need care at home or closer to home, they turn to primary health care service providers like the staff and volunteers of VON Canada. Often, we are your first point of contact with the health care system. It’s our job to help remedy your immediate health concerns. And when you need more specialized help, we show you how to navigate the health care system.
