Heart Month is an opportunity for individuals, groups, and businesses to take the lead in raising funds and awareness for the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. It's giving that goes straight to the heart of care in your community. 

The Ottawa Heart Institute's new clinical tower the largest expansion in our more than 40 year history - will open its doors in April 2018. Right now, there is an urgent need to purchase new cardiac equipment for the new facility.
