The cause

A healthy heart waits for no one

We dream of the day when cardiovascular disease will no longer be the leading cause of death worldwide, or even the second or third. That’s why we regularly launch fundraising initiatives like the Cours pour le Coeur program.

Every donation counts. Including yours!

Did you know that...

...your donations enable our medical teams to continue to excel in research, health professional training, ultra-specialized care and prevention, benefiting thousands of patients?

...the Montreal Heart Institute is Canada’s largest cardiology centre?

...over 50% of its patients come from outside Montreal?

...the Institute treats 68,000 patients every year?

Your donations allow our medical teams to continue to excel in the areas of research, training, prevention, and ultra‑specialized care.

In 2019-2020, the Foundation allocated to the Institute $25.7 million.

And it’s all thanks to generous donors like you!

On behalf of Nancy,

who—after watching a tragic heart attack take her husband, at just 33 years old—didn’t have to lose her godfather in similar circumstances...

On behalf of Sylvain,

who received the greatest gift of all: a new heart, allowing him to resume an active, fulfilling life...


On behalf of Isabelle,

who found comfort and serenity in the excellent care that her sick mother received from the Institute in her final moments...


And on behalf of the tens of hundreds of thousands of Montreal Heart Institute patients, past and present, thank you!

I want to run!
