Basic Life Support (BLS) Status for PEARS Course Participants

The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada (HSFC) requires all PEARS course participants to hold a valid HFSC BLS Provider card prior to being eligible for HSFC PEARS Provider status. 

If you do not hold a valid BLS Provider card or if your BLS card was issued by an organization other than the Heart and Stroke Foundation, you may participate in the PEARS course as an auditing participant. According to Heart and Stroke Foundation rules, auditing participants are not eligible for official PEARS Provider status at the conclusion of the course.

At this time, the Simulation and Outreach Program does not offer Basic Life Support training as a stand-alone course offering.

Basic Life Support (BLS) Status for PALS Course Participants

The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada (HSFC) requires all PALS course participants to hold a valid HFSC BLS Provider card prior to being eligible for HSFC PALS Provider status.  To facilitate this requirement, all of our PALS courses now include HSFC BLS Provider certification. 

At this time, the Simulation and Outreach Program does not offer Basic Life Support training as a stand-alone course offering.
