We believe families are the best support for other families. We offer parent-to-parent support so that you can talk to trained resource parents who have been there and can listen and offer support, advice, and information.

We also offer regular coffee groups in communities throughout the province so that parents can connect and support one another.


To help families and children connect and support one another, we organize many social events for children of all ages throughout the year.

We organize two amazing summer camps for children and youth from across the province to attend (one for children ages 8 to 12 and one for teens ages 13 to 19). For youth we offer fun, monthly events through the Hearts of Gold Youth Program.


CHN also offers a biannual conference for parents and professionals and regular educational workshops for parents and youth. Through our newsletter and website, we offer information and resources on the latest information about congenital and acquired heart disease. We also offer workshops and a biannual conference.
