"ONA was founded in 1973 and over the past 38 years, the union has been a leader in improving workload, working conditions, compensation, workplace safety and addressing professional issues for RNs in Ontario. The public knows that nurses are invaluable, and that dollar for dollar, we are the best value in health care. We welcome our new members from Trillium Health Centre and look forward to providing excellent service to them."
