Today, heart disease and stroke take one life every 7 minutes and 90% of Canadians have at least one risk factor. Heart&Stroke Canvass is the Heart and Stroke Foundation's key opportunity to reach millions of Canadians in February and June, and alert them to the risks of heart disease and stroke. This February and June, more than 70,000 volunteers will canvass door-to-door across the country to help change this statistic. Join us by volunteering in your neighborhood. Here’s how:
As the face of the Heart and Stroke Foundation, each Canvasser visits houses in their neighborhood raising awareness of our cause and collecting funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
When you register as an Online Canvasser, you receive your own personal fundraising headquarters, where you can send emails directly to your online contacts, set a fundraising goal and track your fundraising progress!
With the assistance of a Zone Leader, each Captain helps organize a strong team of approximately 10 Canvassers in their area, delivers and collects canvasser kits, and acts as the point person for Canvassers leading up to and throughout the campaign to ensure the success of door-to-door fundraising.
The Zone Leader works with their local Heart and Stroke Foundation office to establish a strong team of approximately 10 Captains in his or her area. He or she liaises with Captains to ensure they, and their respective Canvassers, have all the materials they need – when they need them – to ensure a successful campaign. Please call your local Heart and Stroke Foundation office for more info.
