It is Canadian Cardiovascular Society policy that no industry support is accepted for the development of guidelines or position statements.

The CCS accepts third party funding for guideline knowledge translation activities, seeking multiple supporters whenever possible. Support is accepted to offset the development and delivery costs of tools, resources, workshops and webinars.   Supporters have no involvement in content development. Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) knowledge translation is currently supported by: Medtronic and St. Jude Medical.
