IRIS is proud to provide exclusive vision care benefits to members of The Royal Canadian Legion.

For over 25 years, IRIS has been a leader in Canadian vision care. What started as a small group of Optometrists in Quebec has grown into a large branded group of eyecare professionals working in over 150 locations across Canada. From Victoria, British Columbia to Havre-Saint-Pierre on the Gulf of St. Lawrence, all IRIS professionals share the same mission, to improve the vision of Canadians.

Healthy eyes and clear vision are among our most valuable assets supporting learning, physical function and independence. At IRIS we believe our responsibility is to help our patients make informed decisions about how to protect this asset and achieve the best possible vision throughout their lifetime.

An annual eye examination with an Optometrist is essential to maintain eye health. To an IRIS Doctor of Optometry, better vision is about more than your prescription. It’s about your history, your activities, your lifestyle, your personality and your budget. That is why we developed the IRIS Profile, a personalized profile to help determine your unique vision requirements.

IRIS offers lenses, frames, contact lenses and eye health supplements from the world’s leading manufacturers. By understanding your needs fully, we can provide you with eye care products and services to best suit you.

As a member of The Royal Canadian Legion, you and the members of your household are eligible for exclusive benefits towards the cost of prescription glasses, sunglasses, contact lenses, and vision correction surgery at our Ophthalmology Centre in Laval, Quebec. We hope you will take advantage of this program and all the benefits IRIS offers, including our No-Matter-What-Guarantee, interest-free financing, and AIR MILES reward miles.

For many people with mobility issues, routine tasks such as bathing can become challenging. Slippery surfaces, high step-ins, and lack of support bars can make taking a bath risky. Broken bones from falls can forever change a person’s ability to live independently. 

At Canadian Safe Step Walk—In Tub Co., we understand that our clients need a walk-in tub that will help them remain safe, comfortable and independent. The addition of a walk-in tub can also extend the ability to live independently by an average of five years. Our tubs are loaded with safety features including low step-ins, anti-slip surfaces, safety grab bars and wider doors.

As part of Canadian Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co.’s initiative to give back, we are proud to partner with the Royal Canadian Legion’s Member Benefits Package and to help our veterans through various programs. Through our Safe Step Cares program, one such recipient is Cpl. Franck Dupéré, from the 4th Battalion of the Royal 22nd, who served in Afghanistan in 2011. He was wounded by a suicide bomber and now lives with approximately 200 pieces of shrapnel inside his body as well as numerous other injuries. However, his experience has not changed his personality; he continues to be the same fun-loving guy he always was.

When Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co., heard his story we decided to provide Cpl. Dupéré with a state-of-the-art hydrotherapeutic walk-in tub, which greatly helped improve his quality of life. We were proud to be able to give back to someone who gave so much.

Canadian Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co., is a 100% Canadian-owned business supplying the highest quality North American made walk-in tubs and showers. We have the most certifications and the best warranty in the industry. In our own small way, we also proudly serve our fellow Canadians.

Exclusive benefit for Legion Members $2000 Off, in appreciation we will donate $225 to the Dominion Command for every walk-in tub sold and installed to Legion members when mentioning this advertisement. Call today, toll-free 1-800-668-5806.

Starkey is proud to be working together with The Royal Canadian Legion

Starkey is much more than the hearing aids we produce. Starkey is an experience. One that doesn’t merely promise more, but delivers more: more communication, more participation and more opportunities to do what you love to do. That’s because, starting from day one, Starkey has operated under the single-minded purpose that “Hearing is our concern.” And it’s why, since day two, we’ve been committed to constantly improving the technology of hearing — and creating the best hearing aids possible.

Starkey is the hearing aid industry’s only North American owned and operated company. It has been since our inception in 1967. But hearing loss is a global problem. In 1984, founder Bill Austin started the Starkey Hearing Foundation. Based on the simple premise, “Alone we can’t do much. But, together we can change the world,” the Foundation has funded a worldwide outreach program called “So the World May Hear,” that has distributed nearly 1,000,000 hearing aids around the world to people in need. Your support allows us to deliver more than 100,000 hearing aids annually through more than 100 global hearing missions a year, in countries like Mexico, Malawi, Vietnam and Mozambique.

Each hearing life deserves very special treatment. It’s what we believe. It’s the reason why we treat every hearing aid fitting as a life-changing opportunity. Our network of Starkey hearing professionals, including audiologists, hearing aid specialists and ENT doctors, share this philosophy and each will work closely with you to help ensure you get the world’s best hearing solutions. This is something you will not find at a big box store and its what separates Starkey from the rest.

Starkey believes that independent practices provide state of the art products through highly qualified personnel. When you choose to improve your life through a journey of better hearing, make sure to visit a Starkey recommended clinic, and always insist on a Starkey product. Not only will you change your life; you’ll help change the lives of people around the world.
