Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada is the largest and only all-Canadian wish granting charity dedicated to granting wishes to Canadian children between the ages of 3 and 17 who are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. For more than 30 years, Children’s Wish has worked tirelessly to grant heartfelt wishes to more than 25,000 children and their families – that’s three wishes each and every day, all year long!

Children’s Wish has chapter offices and professional staff in every province, and each wish family is assigned a dedicated Wish Coordinator who is able to personally and carefully structure each heartfelt wish experience to meet the particular needs of the child and their family. Travel wishes include all siblings 21 years and under living in the same household, and families travel worry-free thanks to exclusive Blue Cross insurance.

Our newly expanded reach, which includes children diagnosed with a serious neurological or genetic condition, means continued strong wish referral support through our medical community. Wish referrals continue to increase year over year, and we are proud to maintain our ‘no waiting list’ policy, thanks to our generous donors.

Now more than ever, we are encouraging Canadians to donate and support Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada. Help us grant the next single-most heartfelt wish.


Measurable impact

Every day of the year we fulfill the single-most heartfelt wish of three Canadian children living with pain and uncertainty. You may not know it, but one of them might be that child living on your street, or sitting in class next to your own child. For three decades, we’ve been making a difference in communities across Canada, probably even right where you live.


Wide-reaching results

We touch the lives of thousands of people each year. You see, every time we grant the wish of a seriously ill child, we also create hope and happiness for the child’s family, healthcare team as well as for every person who cares and worries about that child. One wish, so many smiles.


An Efficient Operation

Less than 15 per cent of all donations to Children’s Wish goes towards administrative costs. Our donors and volunteers love knowing that their generosity and efforts go directly to the children and families who need our help.
