Millions of Canadians experience irregular heart rhythms, known as arrhythmias. Arrhythmias can cause sudden cardiac death, which kills 40,000 Canadians a year. Arrhythmias are projected to be the leading cause of death in Canada by 2020.
As part of the federal government’s Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) program, CANet is a multidisciplinary, multi-sectoral research and development network of over 100 investigators, well-positioned industry partners, patients and healthcare providers focused on arrhythmia research and commercialization activities.
CANet is harnessing the talents of the best arrhythmia researchers, engineers and social scientists in Canada with an end goal of making new discoveries and transforming them into products, services, and improved processes to achieve national and global impact. Together, we are working towards the future, which is shaped by a clear vision: a transformed Canadian arrhythmia care ecosystem focused on the individual needs of each patient.
