The Canadian Congenital Heart Alliance (CCHA) is a volunteer-run registered charitable organization made up of patients with a congenital heart defect, their friends, families, and the medical community. With your support, we aim to improve the quality of care for these patients, many of whom require lifelong expert care.

Are you an adult with congenital heart diseases? To find a cardiologist with specialized training in adult congenital heart disease, please read for important info.


Since 2004, the Canadian Congenital Heart Alliance has been providing education, support, and advocacy for the 257,000 Canadians with congenital heart disease. Your generosity is very much appreciated.

World Epilepsy Day seems to be embraced worldwide, with everyone wearing purple. It's fantastic. We need to make this happen for CHD Awareness Day next February. I don't recall any news about doctors and nurses wearing red, etc. and certainly no mainstream media talking about it. We have work to do!
