Canadian Pacific will invest CA$1.5 million into heart disease research in Canada over the next three years, the Heart and Stroke Foundation announced this week.
Prior to this latest donation, the Class I — through its community program CP Has Heart — has invested close to CA$5 million in heart and stroke research, foundation officials said in a press release.
"CP has demonstrated a clear recognition of the value of supporting research in promoting health, saving lives and enhancing recovery for the millions of people in our country who are living with or at risk for heart disease," said Doug Roth, chief executive officer the foundation.
Every nine minutes, someone in Canada dies from heart conditions. Not only have heart disease and stroke persisted during the pandemic, but it's been learned that COVID-19 can damage previously healthy hearts and have serious impacts on the brain, foundation officials said.
