Red Cross Day

Every year, May 8 marks World Red Cross Day to commemorate the more than 150 years of humanitarian actions by the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement around the world.

Today we honour the work done worldwide by 17 million Red Cross and Red Crescent volunteers to assist the most vulnerable in their communities and beyond.

*70 per cent of heart attacks occur at home - WOULD YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO?*

Although the majority of Canadians say they would recognize the signs of someone experiencing a heart attack or another cardiac emergency, fewer than half say they have the skills to help in this common and life-threatening emergency.

  • More than 50,000 Canadians die of heart disease every year.
  • Nearly 60 per cent of Canadians who have had to perform first aid did so to help a family member.
  • Canadians who have taken a first aid course are considerably more confident in their skills to be able to help someone experiencing a medical emergency.
