Heart Month is a national campaign that mobilizes Canadians to rally together in raising awareness and funds that have an enormous impact on the lives of all Canadians. Through the generosity and compassion of volunteers, the Heart and Stroke Foundation is able to help Canadians prevent heart disease and stroke, save lives by enabling faster and better emergency medical response and treatment, and enhance support for survivors, families and caregivers.
Every seven minutes in Canada, a life is taken by heart disease or stroke.
This February, more than 70,000 volunteers will canvass door-to-door across the country to help change this statistic. Join us by volunteering in your neighborhood this February.
