About Us

The University of Ottawa Heart Institute Foundation is the bridge between the generous donors of this community and the exceptional work being done at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. The Foundation creates opportunities for charitable fundraising and philanthropic support, engages with volunteers throughout the community, and celebrates the accomplishments and advancements made by the Heart Institute’s clinical, research, support staff, and volunteers. The Foundation plays a vital role in ensuring that the many critical components of world-class cardiovascular care are available to patients in our community and across the country.
