HEART AND STROKE FOUNDATION NOT AFFILIATED WITH COMPANIES SELLING CPR TRAINING DOOR-TO-DOOR

TORONTO, Feb. 24 /CNW/ - Over the past year, the Heart and Stroke Foundation has received several calls from consumers asking if the Foundation is associated with, or endorses, companies that are going door-to-door selling Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) training courses. 

Several of the consumer calls have been to complain about the sales approach and tactics of these companies. 

The Heart and Stroke Foundation is not affiliated with companies going door-to-door selling CPR training courses.

The majority of the fraudulent activity is in Ontario and Quebec.

Learning CPR is an essential skill that could save the life of someone you know and love. The Heart and Stroke Foundation encourages everyone to learn CPR, but when signing up for a course, Canadians should contact their local provincial Heart and Stroke Foundation office to verify if the course providers are legitimate. A list of Foundation contacts is available at www.heartandstroke.ca/CPR

The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada establishes the guidelines for CPR and emergency cardiac care in Canada. The Foundation also establishes the course curriculum for CPR and advanced level resuscitation courses targeted to both the public and to the healthcare professionals including instructor level courses.

The Foundation asks that those providing CPR courses in Canada follow the guidelines established by Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.
