Our Mission

The HeartLife Foundation is a patient-driven charity whose mission is to transform the quality of life for people living with heart failure by engaging, educating, and empowering a global community to create lasting solutions and build healthier lives.

About Us

HeartLife Foundation is Canada’s first – and only – national patient-led Heart Failure organization. We are a Federal Charity aimed at raising public awareness of Heart Failure, engaging patients, families, and caregivers to provide education and support, facilitate access to the latest research, innovations, and treatments, and advocate better care for all.

Patient Journey

The patient journey map captures and summarizes real stories, emotions, questions, and lifestyle challenges heart failure patients experience in their care continuum. By truly empathizing with and learning what heart failure patients experience today, we can highlight the current needs, pain points, and wishes on how to improve care. We’re taking the first step to ensure the patient’s voice is heard.

Patient & Caregiver Charter of Rights

Our heart failure patient and caregiver charter was created to support our advocacy towards the implementation of a national standard of care for Canadians living with heart failure and their caregivers.​
