Events Volunteer

Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada is the largest and only all-Canadian wish granting charity dedicated to granting wishes to Canadian children between the ages of 3 and 17 who are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. For more than 30 years, Children’s Wish and our volunteers have worked tirelessly to grant over 25,000 children and their families a heartfelt wish– each is as unique as the child making it.
