Celebrate 35 Years of Impact with Us!

As we celebrate our 35th anniversary at CanChild, we honor the powerful stories and lived experiences that have shaped our journey. Every story is a testament to the resilience of the families and communities we serve and the transformative power of our work together.

Why Your Support Matters

Over the past 35 years, we’ve achieved remarkable milestones, from engaging families in research and empowering them to changing the lives of families all over the world. Today, we continue to strive towards generating meaningful knowledge and changing the lives of more families, ensuring that our impact not only endures but expands.

While most of our research is funded through grants, your donations are vital for us to continue disseminating our work. Your support helps us amplify the voices of families and children, raising awareness and driving change worldwide.

How You Can Help

This year, as we celebrate our 35th birthday, we invite you to join us in making a difference. Your donation can help us:

  • Enable patient and family partners to participate in scientific conferences
  • Disseminate reports of lived experience through our networks to raise awareness
  • Make our results and tools available for free and translated in French and other languages

Every contribution, big or small, helps us continue our work and create a lasting impact.

if you want your donation to be used for a specific theme or project, please contact one of the co-directors.
