At the Foundation, we are making a difference by speaking out for Canadians to strengthen public health policies and fund the development and implementation of programs that will help reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke for Canadians. We do this in part by influencing public opinion and educating the public.

When we see the need for change, we act.

Over the last 50 years, our advocacy leadership has led to remarkable achievements such as:

  • Removing smoking from public spaces,
  • Increasing blood pressure awareness,
  • Promoting healthy weights,
  • Reducing dangerous trans fats and salt in the food supply,
  • Improving resuscitation training, standards, and access – all of which have helped us save countless lives.

Advocacy plays a fundamental role in helping move the Heart and Stroke Foundation towards reaching its vision: Healthy lives free of heart disease and stroke. Together we will make it happen.

Advocacy and Stakeholder Relations at the Heart and Stroke Foundation

At the federal level, the Foundation enjoys an enviable position of having positive, constructive and mutually beneficial relationships with all stakeholders and partners. The Foundation continues to work with the government on a number of initiatives that strategically align with our mission priorities.
