About Starlight
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.


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