The Continuing Education Fund (the Fund) has been established by the British Columbia Association of Optometrists with funds received from the provincial government under the agreement between the provincial government and the Association signed December 4, 2015.

The purpose of the Fund is to encourage optometrists to maintain and enhance their skills through continuing education by financially assisting optometrists with the cost of continuing education.
