Heart failure is very common. Currently, over half a million Canadians have heart failure, and 50,000 new people are diagnosed with the condition every year. Heart failure is the most common reason for admission to hospital. It usually affects people later in life, but can affect people of any age. With the aging population, the number of people affected by heart failure is going to rise.

The HeartLife Foundation was established in 2016 when two heart failure patients determined that there needed to be a dedicated advocacy group, led by patients, for those living with the chronic illness. Those two patients are our founder and president, Jillianne Code, and our co-founder and vice president, Marc Bains.
