About Us

Celebrating over 120 years of community support.

NOVA Montréal (formerly the VON – Victorian Order of Nurses) is a charitable, non-profit, community-based organization that offers healthcare services to the Montréal community. Our dedicated nurses, home healthcare aid workers and volunteers provide compassionate, high quality, personalized, in-home care to people who are ill or nearing the end of life and the families who support them. The following programs and services are available free of charge or at low cost:

Nurses from NOVA Montréal participate regularly in multidisciplinary palliative care meetings at the Jewish General, Verdun CSLC, and LaSalle CLSC or at Mount Sinai Hospital. In addition, we work in collaboration with many hospitals and CLSCs such as the Montréal Children’s Hospital, Montreal General Hospital, Mount Sinai Hospital, CSSS Verdun-Sud-Ouest, CSSS Dorval Lachine LaSalle, CSSS de la Montagne, CSSS Cavendish, McKay Center for children and many others.


Our programs and services are sustained through generous support from our donors, including L’Appui Montréal, individuals, foundations, corporations and community groups. NOVA Montréal does not receive any direct government funding.
