Mission And Values


We serve South Asian communities in the Peel Region, where we are based, and across Canada by promoting cardiovascular health through community awareness, research, and education. Moreover, we conduct and promote research into the causes, prevention and management of heart disease and diabetes.

South Asians are at a higher risk for developing heart disease and diabetes compared to other ethnic groups in the country. We are working to provide a variety of community and research initiatives to improve the health and reduce the risks faced by this population.


We Are Committed to Promoting Cardiovascular Health for South Asians Through Community Awareness, Education and Research.
