Why give?

Our volunteer promise

Our promise to all Heart & Stroke volunteers

Every volunteer is a valued and essential part of achieving Heart & Stroke’s vision of healthy lives free of heart disease and stroke. Our community offers a welcoming and fulfilling environment for volunteers to contribute their time and talents.

We believe:
Volunteers are the heart of the Foundation.

Your gift of time

Our volunteers make a big difference in the lives of Canadians through their generous contributions of time, skill and commitment. With millions of Canadians at risk of heart disease and stroke, there is still so much to do — and so many ways you can help. We have the volunteer opportunities to match your needs and expertise.

What you can expect

A chance to meet new and inspiring people, develop fresh ideas and sharpen your skills. Most of all, you’ll join a dynamic team of volunteers doing important work. 

How much time is required?

Our research, health promotion, advocacy and fundraising activities take place year-round — so we offer both short and longer-term volunteer opportunities. Contact your local office to learn more.

Join the Heart&Stroke Canvass

Every year, tens of thousands of people across Canada make a difference in the lives of others by canvassing for Heart & Stroke’s largest grassroots fundraising initiative. Learn how you can get involved.
