For 39 years, Heart Niagara has been empowering the community to take control of their heart health by providing children and adults with education, training and tools.


The non-profit organization continues this mission by offering free Heart Saver CPR certification at The Market at The Village, 111 Garrison Village Drive, in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The 3 hour session will take place on Saturday, August 27th from 8:30am – 11:30am. Video highlights are featured in the main video from last year’s event.

This year’s theme is Community Safety. The success in saving lives stems from a combination of CPR trained citizens with a quick response emergency care system.

Participants of the free CPR training session will learn essential lifesaving skills by using a CPR Anytime Kit ($35 value), under the instruction of Heart Niagara’s knowledgeable and friendly instructors. This kit is designed to be shared among close family and friends. For every kit distributed, it is estimated that 2.5 additional people are trained.

Registration for the free CPR training is required and space is limited! Children 10+ are welcome to participate if accompanied by a parent or guardian, but they must also be registered.

Heart Niagara is seeking business sponsors and partnerships to help participants get the most out of this experience. Businesses can sponsor the event, and community organizations are welcome to apply to set-up a booth to promote community safety.

For further information about sponsorship, partnership, or to register for the free CPR training, please call 905-358-5552 or e-mail
