Our Network brings together health care professionals, academia, government, industry, not-for-profit, and patients to support new ideas and ground-breaking cardiac research.
CANet is developing and promoting effective practical solutions for personal, healthcare, and business applications. Our approach is to put the right tools in the right hands at the right time.
We want to empower:
To create, test, evaluate, and implement innovative technologies and health strategies to accomplish the vision.
A transformed healthcare system, driving quality, and affordable care to all Canadians for better cardiovascular health outcomes.
Members of CANet’s Board of Directors and Committees come from across Canada and bring a diverse range or expertise.
Our organization is comprised of a diverse range of professional, health, and leadership expertise.
CANet brings together Canada’s globally recognized experts in a wide array of related disciplines to share ideas and advance the cardiac research and treatment field.
We harness the talents of the best researchers, engineers, and social scientists.
The future of our initiatives will be sustained by the next generation of investigators, clinicians, and healthcare professionals. We formed the CANet HQP Association for Trainees (CHAT) to nurture new professionals in public and private research through the development of Highly Qualified Personnel (HQP).
CHAT provides its members valuable resources and opportunities to network with like-minded colleagues, and participate in events and competitions across Canada that help strengthen their research and career development.
To date, CHAT has conducted 187 courses and workshops, trained 5,214 HQP, and launched 135 new careers in the public and private sector workplace. There have also been 141 job promotions received for Allied Health Research Professionals.

Patients and caregivers participate across all network activities:
Our Patient Advisory Council (PAC) consists of patients and caregivers from across Canada.
Members of our PAC share their knowledge of living with a heart condition and also participate in many of our network’s activities and initiatives.
Our unique partnerships create the ideal environment for scientific and clinical advances, knowledge translation, and business opportunities.
We have generated over $50M in partner matching funds. We continue to build partnerships that advance CANet’s mission of using our internationally recognized research groups to attract key stakeholders, work with patients and other communities to generate new knowledge, novel technologies, and key health strategies that will help identify and treat patients at risk.
