The Canadian Cardiovascular Society (CCS) is the national voice for cardiovascular physicians and scientists. The CCS’ mission is to promote cardiovascular health and care through knowledge translation, including dissemination of research and encouragement of best practices; and professional development, and leadership in health policy.
The CCS was formed in November 1946 under the name of The Canadian Heart Association. In June 1947, a constitution for the CHA was drafted, and an election of officers was held. In 1948, The Canadian Heart Association Constitution (attached) was adopted and in 1949, The Canadian Heart Association was Incorporated and the name was changed to ‘The Canadian Heart Association Inc. Société Canadienne de Cardioloigie‘ (CHA/SCC). In 1961, The Canadian Heart Association voted to rename the Canadian Heart Association to the Canadian Cardiovascular Society (CCS) and the name was legally changed to the Canadian Cardiovascular Society in 1962.
