• 2 167 Wishes Granted
  • Vancouver Island Community Abassadors





Make-A-Wish BC & Yukon has been operating on Vancouver Island for more than 35 years now. In 2018, we hit a major milestone: the island community helped us financially support EVERY wish that was granted on the island last year. That didn’t happen by accident— we have an incredibly generous group of individuals, community groups and businesses that came together, and rallied to help support Make-A-Wish.

Together, we grant wishes to children living with critical illnesses. That’s our mission, and through that mission, we hope to reach every eligible child. Each year, the number of wishes continues to grow, as more and more people become aware of how a wish can transform lives.

The names of the people and companies listed below - our 2018 Community Ambassadors - are at the core of helping us change lives through granted wishes. We appreciate each of you and thank you for helping make 2018 our most successful year to date on Vancouver Island!
