Connected by Purpose, Driven by Passion

For Canadian leaders in children’s healthcare, Children’s Healthcare Canada is the only national association that enables local improvements and contributes to system-wide change by building communities across the full continuum of care. Children’s Healthcare Canada is proud to represent health delivery organizations across the continuum of care, serving children and youth. Members of Children’s Healthcare Canada include large academic children’s hospitals, regional health authorities, rehabilitation hospitals, children’s treatment centres, community hospitals with paediatric services, and home care providers. Together with our members, Children’s Healthcare Canada is driven to accelerate excellence and innovation in health systems caring for children and youth.

Members of Children’s Healthcare Canada help shape a national dialogue focused on the healthcare priorities of children and youth. Members have access to a knowledge exchange network where health care providers and administrators connect to discuss and share common challenges, to share leading practices and to expand their own pan-Canadian network of child and youth health leaders.

Children’s Healthcare Canada is a not for profit, membership association that does not benefit from any direct government funding. We rely on membership fees, generous grants from our Patrons and sponsorship of corporate partners to fund our work.
