The Heart & Stroke canvassing campaign began in 1958 in Ontario. Today the canvass is a national, community-based fundraising campaign. Its volunteers connect with their neighbours, family, friends, and online networks to share important health information, and then collect donations for lifesaving research. As a Confirmation Caller, you will connect with our Person to Person campaign canvassers to support program wrap-up and retention.
