Canadian Cardiovascular Society

We advance heart health for all through our advocacy work — from lobbying for changes to health care systems, reporting on and demanding a decrease in wait times for cardiac care, and calling for action on climate change. Between 2015 and 2020, the CCS advocated to the federal government for funding to secure and expand our national reporting system on cardiovascular care quality, better known as the Quality Project. This included meetings with federal policy makers, three appearances before the federal Standing Committee on Finance, and four consecutive recommendations for funding in the annual federal budget. Through this work, we have solidified our reputation as a voice of authority on heart health and heart care. We continue to engage with elected officials across all party lines on issues that are important to our members and Canadians, alike.
