When you support Starlight, you’re helping provide smiles
and joy at a time when children need it most.


Starlight Children's Foundation Canada partners with experts to improve the life and health of kids and families around the world.

What makes us unique is that we are there for the entire journey, from the emergency room to recovery. While in-hospital, Starlight provides distraction, entertainment and relief from stress and the boredom of hospitalization.

When out of hospital, Starlight children benefit from our “Escapes” and “Wishes” programs giving them an opportunity to leave the “sick” behind, create special family memories and return home with a renewed sense of strength and hope.

Starlight is looking to expand to more hospitals and in more communities across Canada. The need is tremendous and it is only with the generous support of our donors and partners that we will be able to reach and impact these special children, who so greatly benefit from our programs.





Starlight focuses on improving quality of life today and over the long-term by supporting families with programs and activities designed for both seriously ill children and their families because illness affects the entire family.


Starlight has been helping seriously ill children and their families for close to 30 years.


Starlight has a network of more than 150 healthcare facilities across the country so we can provide both a national and regional presence on any partnership.


We have experience working with national partners like Air Canada, Toys”R”Us Canada, Babies "R"Us Canada, Ardene and Garage on multi-location cause-related marketing programs.


Starlight’s programs are used over 400,000 times in Canada each year.


We work hard to ensure that our administrative costs are only $0.0 of each dollar.
