The Cardiac Arrhythmia Network of Canada (CANet) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to transforming Canada’s arrhythmia health care system through integrated trans-disciplinary research and development. The network’s strategy is to invent, prove, and implement innovative solutions to enable patients to take ownership and co-manage their arrhythmia health.

CANet is funded by the federal government’s Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE), Canada’s flagship science and technology program and housed at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry at Western University.
