In a milestone moment, Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada and Make-A-Wish® Canada have joined forces, with the goal of granting the wish of every eligible child across Canada. United as Make-A-Wish® Canada, the mission is to provide children with life-threatening illnesses the opportunity to realize their most heartfelt wish, giving them the strength to ensure their treatments and build resilience.
The newly combined organization will have the ability to grant 25 per cent more wishes each year as a united organization than they could have granted as separate entities. Together, they can grant more wishes and change more lives. With up to 6,000 children in Canada facing a critical illness and complex medical needs each year, this is an important step towards the goal of ensuring every eligible wish is granted.
