The Eye Foundation of Canada is working to build a public awareness program that will work with industries to educate the workers on “eye safety” in the workplace. As we proceed from success to success, and our size permits, we plan to continue to take on new projects. We are also gradually expanding our summer scholarship program across Canada.
