Each year, thousands of Canadian children between the ages of three and 17 are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada is dedicated to granting an exceptional wish to every child.
Established in 1984, Children’s Wish is a national non-profit organization dedicated to fulfilling a favourite wish for children diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. Since its inception, Children’s Wish has granted more than 21,000 wishes for children and their families and fulfills approximately 1000 wishes annually — granting nearly three wishes everyday — each being an individual adventure, carefully structured to meet the needs of that particular child. The foundation has never refused a wish to an eligible child.
