About Children's Wish
Each year, thousands of Canadian children between the ages of 3 and 17 are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Since 1984, The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada has worked tirelessly to grant exceptional wishes to over 22,000 children and their families.
This year, the foundation expects to grant 1,000 new wishes and is proud to have never refused a wish to an eligible child, and with the help of volunteers and generous donors, is able to grant over three wishes every day. Each wish is an individual adventure, carefully structured to meet the needs of a particular child and family. The foundation has chapters in every province and territory.
