The health and safety of all wish kids and their families remains our number one priority and is more relevant than ever since the threat of COVID is especially concerning for those who are immunocompromised or not old enough to be vaccinated. With this in mind, we have recently implemented a vaccination policy for all staff and volunteers.
Since the start of the pandemic Make-A-Wish Canada has been granting wishes to children across Canada. Our criteria to grant wishes has not changed during the pandemic which means eligibility is based on the child’s critical illness not their vaccination status. Our priority is on fulfilling as many wishes as we can while following federal and provincial health guidelines to keep all of our wish children, wish families and volunteers safe.
