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. In these times of COVID-19, we have quickly adapted and launched emergency response programs to continue to offer support during our children's isolation. 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 unique is that we are there for the entire journey — from hospital to home.
                                                                                                                                    
While in-hospital, Starlight 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 and Once In A Lifetime Wishes programs to make sure Starlight families always have a reason to believe in magic.
