Chai Lifeline Canada Inc.

Who We Are/Our Mission

Chai Lifeline Canada supports children and parents who are facing life-threatening or life-long illness by providing services that foster resilience and hope for the whole family.  We lead with dedication and integrity and bring empathy, respect, and humility to the families and community we serve.


While medical teams at the hospital are focused on the immediate health of an ill child or parent, Chai Lifeline Canada is dedicated to the wellbeing of the patient and their family. We provide a powerful combination of programs and services – dedicated Case Managers and therapeutic programs, tutoring and medically supervised summer camps, hot meals and hospital visits, and social activities. We nurture our families with love and community.


DBSA Funding Allotments

 The much needed and integral funds raised from participating in the OLG games help cover the costs for imperative programs hosted by Chai Lifeline Canada. Shining Stars provides weekly after-school fun for school children who have a sibling or a parent that is ill. This program focuses on building skills and developing friendships in a safe and supportive environment.  Shining Stars includes transportation from the child’s school, homework assistance, fun and games, snacks, dinner, and then transportation home.
