About The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada
The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada is the largest 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 23,000 children and their families.
This year, Children’s Wish expects to grant over 1,000 new wishes across the country with the help of volunteers and generous donors; that is approximately three wishes each and every day, all year long. The B.C. & Yukon Chapter has granted nearly 100 wishes in the last year alone, and over 1,500 wishes ever! Each wish is the child’s most heartfelt wish, and carefully structured to meet the particular needs of the child and their family.
Already this year, we are experiencing unprecedented increases of wish referrals through our strong medical community relationships. Now more than ever, we are encouraging Canadians to donate and support to help us continue to grant the next most heartfelt wish. Children’s Wish is a national charity with chapters in every province and territory. Visit Childrenswish.ca for more information and to donate.
