McGuinty Government Supports Jobs and Health Services
Agnew & Chapman Optometric Services in Kenora is expanding, helping provide more eye care services for residents.
With assistance from the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC), Agnew & Chapman Optometric Services have moved to a two-storey, 8,500-square foot building refurbished with new equipment and modern examination rooms. This project will create up to five new jobs.
This project is part of the Open Ontario plan to create jobs and ensure greater access to health services for all Ontarians.
- The Government of Ontario is investing $298,894 in this project under the NOHFC's Enterprises North Job Creation Program.
- Optometrists must spend seven to eight years in post-secondary education to obtain their Doctorate of Optometry.
“Quality of life in our northern communities depends greatly on accessibility of health care services such as optometry. I am delighted that we can help this particular provider continue to deliver services to the people of Kenora and area.”
