Make-A-Wish® creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We are on a quest to bring every eligible child’s wish to life because a wish is an integral part of a child’s treatment journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. As an independently operating affiliate of Make-A-Wish International, Make-A-Wish Canada is part of the network of the world’s leading children’s wish-granting organization. We serve children in every community in Canada, and in 50 countries worldwide. Make-A-Wish Canada has granted almost 39,000 wishes over the past 40 years with 1,389 of them last year alone.



Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Wishes typically fall into these five categories:

  • I wish to go
  • I wish to have
  • I wish to be
  • I wish to meet
  • I wish to give
