Flight Centre and Make-A-Wish® Canada Celebrate 10 year Partnership

Flight Centre and Make-A-Wish® Canada recently celebrated 10 years of partnership at this year’s World Wish Day® celebration hosted at Casa Loma in Toronto. It was a special night as the Toronto & Central Ontario Chapter was also celebrating its 1000th wish, sponsored by Flight Centre.

Wish child Mikaela wanted to visit Great Britain with her mother and grandmother and was sent off from the party by limo to the airport to begin her magical journey.


During the decade-long partnership, Flight Centre has contributed over $500,000 in both cash and in-kind travel toward travel wishes for children across Canada.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation’s main mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. For more information about our partnership visit our Community Social Responsibility page.
