The Opticians Association of Canada is pleased to welcome Luxottica as a 2017 Visionary Partner of the OAC. The OAC represents the interests of Licensed Opticians in Canada, with the goal to encourage professional and market growth. We partner with global industry stakeholders who share values, such as understanding the importance of services provided by a Licensed Optician. Luxottica brands are available in Optical stores across the country in both chain and independent dispensaries. Luxottica Retail directly employs Opticians to deliver vision care services to the Canadian public in all their locations and are ranked highly by their employees as a best practice employer. The OAC is delighted Luxottica has offered its support to all Opticians across the country by becoming a Visionary Partner of the OAC.

About the Opticians Association of Canada

The Opticians Association of Canada (incorporated in 1990) is a professional association representing Licensed Opticians in Canada. Our mission is to promote Licensed Opticians and the profession; to develop and maintain a professional standard of knowledge and proficiency in our occupational field, and to educate and inform vision care consumers about matters related to their eye health.

To that end, the Association strives to ensure high quality products and services are provided in Canada by its Opticians and to promote the highest standard of education for those Opticians. In addition, the Association is mandated to review legislation affecting the eye care industry and to seek changes, where deemed necessary.

To guarantee that these standards are maintained throughout Canada, the Association relies upon its provincial counterparts to carefully monitor the situations in their provinces and to take the appropriate steps to maintain the integrity of the profession and to support their regulatory bodies in protecting the public interest.
