Cardiovascular Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) Certification is a course that was developed to teach a combination of life-saving techniques to assist people in life-threatening situations such as cardiac arrests and strokes. It includes Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and First Aid Training. The CPR-C qualification reinforces skills that are needed to respond to emergencies in adults, children, and infants.

This is augmented by initiatives such as the one by The Ottawa Hospital Research Institute that aim to improve health and survival rates. According to the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, it has saved thousands of lives and doubled survival rates, after expanding to all Canadian provinces.
