Mission and Vision

Our Mission

We advance heart health for all.

Our Vision of Success

Strong heart teams in a heart-healthy Canada.

Our Guiding Principles

We do what we say we’re going to do. We hold each other accountable and honor our commitments. We do what’s right, even when no one is watching.

We bring people together. We build relationships and seize opportunities to work together with others who share a common purpose.

Excellence and Quality
We embrace change and continuously improve ourselves. We seek new and better ways to do our work. We learn from our mistakes.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility
We believe unique voices and experiences make us stronger. We provide opportunities for members and other heart health stakeholders to engage on their terms. We ensure equitable access to CCS opportunities, programs, services, and forums.

We take care of ourselves and each other. We believe the well-being of members, staff, and the profession is critical to the sustainability of the organization.

We think critically and make evidence-based decisions. We measure, evaluate, and report on our outcomes to drive success.
