In a milestone moment, Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada and Make-A-Wish® Canada have joined forces. United as Make-A-Wish® Canada, the mission is to provide the opportunity for all eligible Canadian children with critical illnesses to realize their most heartfelt wish. When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope.
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.
