 importance and benefits of belonging to your professional association.



The Ontario Opticians Association has been the voice of opticians for 74 years. We have made a commitment to our members to speak on your behalf, but also to listen to all of you.

We asked all of you how you were doing during our Specialty Symposium webcast.
We heard what you had to say, and now we have made changes to our membership fees to help support our members better.

2020 has been a difficult year for all opticians, so in light of this, the OOA has lowered your membership fee for 2021.

The membership fee has now been reduced to $130.00 (+HST) from $165.00.

Thank you all for your continued commitment to the Ontario Opticians Association!
