The Canadian Heartland Foundation will provide half the cost of the placement of new defibrillators (equipment and training).
The remainder of the funding must come from the fundraising efforts of the applicants. This amount will be not less than $500.
The suggested AED placement must be in a publicly accessible building (a community hall, recreation centre, Seniors' home, etc.) situated within the geographic boundaries of the riding of Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox & Addington. Riding Map and Description
A selection committee made up of healthcare professionals from the area will evaluate all submissions to ensure that the placements make sense.
In April 2012, the selection committee will announce which projects have been successful in receiving funding for their Automated External Defibrillator.
