About Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation Program

​​​​​​​​​​The Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation Program​​ helps people with heart disease improve their cardiac health and fitness. It also helps them reduce their chance of future cardiac incidents by making lasting lifestyle and behaviour changes.

The program is 6 months long and is designed for people with a history of heart attack, heart surgery, valve surgery, angioplasty, arrhythmia, angina or other heart conditions. It's also for those at high risk of heart disease because of their family history, high cholesterol, high blood pressure or diabetes.

The program includes:
