Montreal Heart Institute Foundation

The Montreal Heart Institute Foundation is proud of its 35-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 2019 campaign raised more that $225,000 for the Foundation. Over the years, our partnership has allowed us to raise more that $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.
