Canvass Door-to-Door
Canvassers at a door

By going door-to-door in your neighbourhood this February, you'll be warming the hearts of thousands of Canadians affected by heart disease and stroke.

You can support the door-to-door campaign by becoming a Canvasser, Captain or Zone Leader, described below.




Volunteering just 3 hours of your time to open doors in your neighbourhood this February will have a huge impact on thousands of Canadians. As an ambassador for the Heart and Stroke Foundation, you will go door-to-door to visit 20-25 houses on a route in your area to:

  • Ask for funds to support life-saving Heart and Stroke Foundation research
  • Hand out Door Hangers so that your neighbours can read about the impact their contributions make, donate online, and learn the signs of a heart attack. Thank neighbours for supporting the Heart and Stroke Foundation

All Canvassers are invited to a Heart Rally (Heart Month Launch event) which takes place in January. Read more about Heart Rally here.

Captains are critical to the success of the Campaign! You'll be working with Zone Leaders and/or Heart and Stroke Foundation staff to LEAD a team of Canvassers to deliver a successful Campaign. It's an important role that the Heart and Stroke Foundation greatly appreciates. As a Captain, you'll:

  • Coach, motivate and recruit a strong team of approximately 10 Canvassers
  • Attend the Captain Summit and Heart Rally (Heart Month launch event)
  • Deliver and collect kits
  • Train any of your Canvassers who do not attend a Heart Rally
  • Call each of your Canvassers to provide support during February
  • Thank Canvassers for their efforts

Zone Leader

Becoming a Zone Leader has many rewards. You'll have a chance to meet new and inspiring people, utilize your organizational skills, develop new skills, but most of all you'll be an important part of the Heart Month Campaign. As a Zone Leader you'll work with the Heart and Stroke Foundation to:

  • Coach, motivate and recruit a strong team of approximately 10 Captains
  • Liaise with Captains to ensure they and their respective Canvassers have all the materials they need to ensure a successful campaign
  • Follow up and provide support to your Captain team
  • Thank Captains for their efforts
