About Us

In 1947, it began with three doctors who pondered the idea of creating a group of specialized individuals who could collaborate, learn from each other and talk to each other.

Today, the Canadian Cardiovascular Society™ is over 2000 members strong. We are known nationally and internationally by cardiovascular healthcare professionals for the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress (CCC), the CCS Angina classification system, the pan-Canadian Access to Care Benchmarks for the entire continuum of cardiovascular care, and the development of Canadian recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of heart failure – just to name a few.
