We believe fighting for the health and wellbeing of children is one of the most powerful ways to improve society. 

Our mission is to inspire communities to invest in health and scientific advances to improve the lives of children and their families in Canada and around the world.

We commit to adhering to the highest standards of conduct, ethical practice, and honest, transparent communication.

We strive to reach our full potential as an organization and seek improvement opportunities to become the best at what we do.
