The Make-A-Wish Foundation
The mission of Make-A-Wish® Canada is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
Along with the national office, eight regional chapters grant magical wishes to children in need from coast-to-coast. Make-A-Wish Canada is an affiliate of Make-A-Wish® International, the largest wish-granting organization in the world, making dreams and wishes come true for more than 334,000 children since 1980.
The World Partnership Walk
This is Canada's largest annual event raising money and awareness to End Global Poverty. An initiative of Aga Khan Foundation Canada, funds raised, by the World Partnership Walk, support meaningful projects identified and implemented by local communities – projects that revitalize a rural economy, ensure clean water and sanitation, strengthen community-based organizations and educate new generations of girls and women.
