February is Heart Month!

The University of Ottawa Heart Institute encourages individuals, groups and businesses to raise funds and awareness during Heart Month. Your generous support goes straight to the heart of care in your community.

The Ottawa Heart Institute's new building will be completed in March of early 2018 and there is an urgent need to purchase new cardiac equipment now.

Together, we can take this world-class cardiac center to the next level and allow us to continue to recruit world leaders in cardiac treatment and research.

There are 28 days and so many ways to support lifesaving care at the Heart Institute! 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!

Corporate Community Matching:

January 30 - February 5th: Telus
February 6 - 12th: Ogilvie Mercedes-Benz. A member of The Mierins Automotive Group
February 13-19th: Canadian Pacific

Get involved

Put your personal spin on Heart Month: invite family, friends and co-workers to host an event, sell our paper hearts and display them proudly! 100% of the funds raised will support the University of Ottawa Heart Institute.
