Montreal Heart Institute Foundation

Montreal Heart Institute Foundation

The Montreal Heart Institute Foundation is proud of its 30-year partnership with IGA.

Since 1983, IGA and the Montreal Heart Institute have joined forces to promote heart health and healthy lifestyle habits. Thanks to thousands of donors, the 2018 campaign raised nearly $330,000 for the Foundation. Over the years, our partnership has allowed us to raise close to $9 million!


Thanks to the “$2 does the heart good” fundraising campaign and everyone who takes part every year, specialists are able to pursue innovative research projects such as the Prevention Observatory which will allow the Montreal Heart Institute, the first Canadian health care centre to be recognized by the WHO as a Health Promoting Hospital, to become a leader of preventing cardiovascular and chronic disease.

The campaign is back again this year from February 7 to 20, 2019 in nearly 300 IGA stores in Quebec. This year, those who donate will receive a fresh fruit!
