About Us

The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses.

Our goal is to give very ill children the experience of a lifetime and to create wonderful memories for their entire family. All of the children you help by shopping in the Catalogue of Wishes are going through long and painful treatments. For these kids, the thought of a treasured wish coming true can have a dramatically positive effect on their health. But sadly, many seriously ill children don’t have the luxury of time. That’s why our volunteers and staff must pull out all the stops to make the most longed for wishes come true within just a few days or weeks.

Every year, wishes come true for approximately 900 very special children. Donors like you, volunteers and staff are dedicated to customizing each child’s wish down to the tiniest details.

The Children’s Wish Foundation does not receive any government support. Instead, the generosity of Canadians just like you makes each and every wish come true.

Catalogue of Wishes

Our Catalogue of Wishes is an easy way for you to make a real difference in the life of a seriously ill child. It offers a wide range of ‘symbolic’ gifts you can give in honour of a friend, family member or loved on a special day like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, a birthday or an anniversary.

All proceeds from the purchase of these virtual gifts will go toward making a wish come true for a child suffering from a life-threatening illness.

By giving online, you can help us fulfill a child’s wish even faster. It means many more smiles and precious memories, sooner.

Thank you for your interest and support.
