Heart Institute Auxiliary

UOHI volunteersVolunteers are an essential part of the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. Each year, the auxiliary operates in lockstep with the Heart Institute to provide essential services.

Some 200 volunteers contribute more than 20,000 hours of service each year and support nearly every aspect of Heart Institute activities. In addition, the auxiliary generates funds that go directly toward the purchase of medical equipment.

The primary role of our volunteers is providing support to patients and their families, to visitors, and to the nursing and medical staff. Members of the auxiliary can be found at information desks, in clinics and in intensive care areas. The Atrium Boutique—the Heart Institute’s lobby gift shop—is entirely managed by auxiliary volunteers.

Our volunteers help to make the Heart Institute the leading cardiovascular centre in the country. Please consider joining us.
