A few “not-so-fun” facts:


  • Every 7 minutes in Canada someone dies from heart disease or stroke – that's 206 people dying from cardiovascular disease and stroke every day.
  • 29% of all deaths in Canada are from heart disease (Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in Canada, claiming more than 33,600 lives per year).
  • Nine in 10 Canadians have at least one risk factor for heart disease or stroke. Risk factors include smoking, alcohol, physical inactivity, obesity, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol and diabetes.

·        Heart disease also has an enormous financial cost - cardiovascular disease costs the Canadian economy more than $20.9 Billion every year.
