Heart and Stroke


Every 7 minutes a Canadian dies from heart attack or stroke.


The Heart and Stroke Foundation is calling you to action. Make your health last!


51 percent of Canadians know that they are a candidate for heart and stroke.  However, only one third of us talk to our doctor about managing our health. Prevention is key – 80 percent of premature heart disease and stroke are preventable through healthy lifestyle choices. February is Heart Month.


This month, I encourage residents to explore heart-healthy choices by trying the free Risk Assessment questionnaire. The assessment is available at: www.heartandstroke.ca/riskassessment.


Stay healthy by staying informed.
