The question is if CPR/ACLS certification that was done in the US is recognized as well in Canada, particularly in Ontario.
Anyone? Thank you.

- Aug 19, '12 by juan de la cruzI would assume so but I'm not positive on it. ACLS Guidelines are a joint effort between the two North American countries as well as data gathered from other parts of the world and whatever is the final product is the result of expertise from research globally. While the American Heart Association publishes the guidelines in the US, the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation is the entity that disseminates this information in Canada. The content of the guidelines should be the same. Canadian institutions, however, might require a certificate with an official stamp from the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation.
