About The Sunshine Foundation of Canada

The Sunshine Foundation of Canada is a charity based in London, Ontario that transforms the lives of kids and their families living with physical disabilities through our dream programs. Unlike other wish-granting organizations, a Sunshine Dream experience is not a child’s last wish but an opportunity that helps kids build and express a positive sense of self leading to a brighter, more hopeful future.

Over 30 years later, we celebrate 64 Sunshine DreamLifts and over 8,700 young lives transformed by the tremendous impact of having a dream come true. These dreams have helped kids break barriers and write brighter future stories for themselves, showing them that nothing can stay in the way of their dreams.

Your Impact

Funds raised through the Sunshine Float for Dreams events ensure that we are able to make more dreams come true.

Sunshine Dream Programs are once-in-a-lifetime experiences for kids that ignite a sense of newfound independence, build confidence, and create joyful memories for them and their family that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. Confidence is what allows kids to successfully transition into adulthood, try new things, and continue to pursue life goals without letting their physical disabilities or illnesses impede their success.

With hundreds dreams in the planning stages, it’s vitally important that Sunshine works with forward-thinking community partners to fulfill the dreams of the kids we serve.
