February is Heart Month!

Heart Month is an opportunity for individuals, groups, and businesses to take the lead in raising funds and awareness for the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. It's giving that goes straight to the heart of care in your community.

The Ottawa Heart Institute's new clinical tower the largest expansion in our more than 40 year history will open its doors in April 2018. Right now, there is an urgent need to purchase new cardiac equipment for the new facility equipment that will enable the Heart Institute to keep saving lives in our community.

Heart Month means 28 days and so many ways to support lifesaving care at the Heart Institute online, at events, and more! PLUS throughout the month, our Corporate Community Match Champions will match some of the donations we receive which could mean that your Heart Month donation will be doubled!

Put your personal spin on Heart Month: invite family, friends, and co-workers to host or attend an event, sell our paper hearts or buy one when you see them in local businesses and display them proudly! 100% of the funds raised through Heart Month initiatives support the University of Ottawa Heart Institute.
