Saving moments. Funding breakthroughs. Saving lives.

Your support can save lives.

Thanks to you, and people like you, the Heart & Stroke Lottery has raised over $242 million for research at preeminent teaching hospitals and universities across Ontario.

This year, our focus is to understand how women’s hearts and brains are different to ensure women are equitably represented in research. Now, women are under-researched, under-diagnosed, and over-dying.

With your help, we’re taking steps to end this injustice.

  • Sweating
  • Upper body discomfort
  • Nausea
  • Shortness of Breath
  • Light-headedness
