Victorian Order of Nurses Mississauga

Victorian Order of Nurses Mississauga

For over 100 years, VON has pioneered health services in Canada. We have a proud tradition of often being the first to identify emerging health and social needs, and then providing innovative services that meet those needs. That's the way it's been since the founding of the Victorian Order of Nurses for Canada.

If you, or someone in your family, were recovering from an illness and needed home care, who would you trust? Most Canadians from coast to coast would say VON. The reason: at VON Canada (Victorian Order of Nurses), we believe in treating the whole person, not just their ailment.

VON offers more than 75 different home care solutions, personal support, and community services to enhance each client's quality of life by providing them with the personal assistance and support needed to make them comfortable in their own home. We've been doing so for more than 114 years.
