How many cardiac arrests occur in Canada each year?

As many as 40,000 cardiac arrests occur each year in Canada. That is about one every 12 minutes.  If you find someone experiencing cardiac arrest, you must act quickly. With each passing minute, the probability of survival declines by seven per cent to 10 per cent. The use of an AED with CPR before the arrival of Emergency Medical Services can increase the individual’s chance of survival by up to 75 per cent.
