About Starlight Canada

Starlight Children’s Foundation® Canada has been dedicated to brightening the lives of seriously ill children and their families for over 30 years. Focusing on the family as a whole, our mission is to bring joy, laughter, relief, and a whole lot of smiles. Our large variety of in-hospital and outpatient programs help bring back some strength, hope, and lost childhood by being that reliable and shining star in a dark and stormy sky.


What makes Starlight Canada unique is that we are there for the entire journey — from hospital to home.


While in-hospital, Starlight Canada gives kids a much-needed distraction from the stress and boredom of hospitalization. From toys to the latest technology to full-blown parties, we replace that fear and loneliness with fun and excitement! While out-of-hospital, we’re granting wishes of all sizes with our Day Brightener Wishes, Great Escapes® Wishes, Once In A Lifetime Wishes, and most recently, our Play From Home Packs, to make sure Starlight families always have a reason to believe in magic.


Starlight Canada is looking to expand to 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.

Your support makes our Starlight programs possible.
Help us reach the thousands of children in Canada who live with serious illness.
