Canadian Cardiovascular Society

About Us

In 1947, it began with three doctors who pondered the idea of creating a group of specialized colleagues who could collaborate on research, share information, and learn from each other.

Today, the Canadian Cardiovascular Society™ is over 2,300 members strong. We are known nationally and internationally by cardiovascular healthcare professionals for major contributions such as the annual 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.
