Charity Overview

Along with the national office, eight regional chapters grant magical wishes to children in need from coast-to-coast. Make-A-Wish Canada is an affiliate of Make-A-Wish® International, the largest wish-granting organisation in the world, making dreams and wishes come true for more than 500,000 children since 1980.

On October 1 2019, Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada and Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Canada joined forces, with the goal of granting the wish of every eligible child across the country. United as Make-A-Wish® Canada, their mission is to provide children with life-threatening illnesses the opportunity to realise their most heartfelt wish.
