Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario

The Hamilton Community Foundation (HCF) is part of a network of more than 191 Canadian community foundations who contribute time, leadership and financial support to initiatives that benefit their community most, based on an intimate understanding of local needs and opportunities.

With funding from the HCF, McMaster's School of Nursing's Health in the Hubs initiative is combining existing research evidence around the health issues with residents' views to come up with potential solutions.

The HCF also supports a pilot project by the Midwifery Education Program that brings midwifery services to Hamilton's McQuesten neighbourhood. The project evaluates the introduction of group prenatal care and involves both midwifery and nursing students in the provision of care.

The HCF has supported the Jack Laidlaw Chair in Patient Centred Health Care. They also support the Frank C. Miller Jr. Bursary, a fund that supports tuition costs for students in the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine
