About Nations Health
Nations Health is a grassroots multidisciplinary healthcare platform seeking to provide services to priority populations in our local communities. Affordable (free or low-cost services) offered through this platform are provided stationary (proposed) and portable platforms, including optometrists, opticians, ophthalmologists, dentists, dental hygienists, dieticians, physiotherapists, social workers, mental health therapists, and various other healthcare professionals.
Catering to Canada’s underserved populations
Identifying barriers to accessing care and addressing them from a patient-centred approach defines the flexibility of the Nations Health system. Utilizing existing partnerships with various community organizations and public institutions, Nations Health, via its subsidiaries, caters to local priority populations, ensuring the sustainable provision of care to this underserved segment of our population.
A phased rollout is underway, initiated through Nation’s Vision portable eye care and eyewear services in 2019 and now extending to portable oral health services in the summer of 2021 with Nation’s Dental.

We believe quality healthcare services should be available to all Canadians
We believe providing healthcare to priority populations should be self-sustainable and independent of fluctuations in donations or government funding.
Partners & collaboration
We believe in the power of collaborations, particularly with our partnered organizations, ensuring our patients receive services in accessible locations while supporting their awareness and use of the diverse services provided by our partners.
We believe in the tremendous value of diversity; this is reflected in the communities and people we serve and is matched by the diversity of the Nation's Vision team.
We believe in positive, values-based alignment with our organizational messaging, actions, decisions, and leadership to achieve our mission.
Cultural Safety & Humility
We believe in a patient-centred approach to our services and continued reflection to build trust, respect, and reconciliation.
