About Us

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.


Members of the press play an important role in helping Starlight Canada connect with the children, teens, families, and partner facilities that need us most. We welcome your inquiries, and will promptly accommodate all requests.
