Join us as we support CIBC Miracle Day on Wednesday, December 7, 2016

CIBC Miracle Day began in 1984 and to date has raised nearly $79 million for children’s charities across Canada and $228 million globally. Every year, on the first Wednesday in December, the CIBC Capital Markets team and CIBC Wood Gundy Investment Advisors donate their fees and commissions to help kids in need.

As one of the recipients of Miracle Day’s raised funds, the Children’s Aid Foundation is extremely appreciative of the generous donations that enable us to continue to serve deserving children and young people.

To date 11,128 miracles have been granted.
CIBC Miracle Fund
Launched by CIBC in partnership with the Children’s Aid Foundation through a leadership gift in 1999, the CIBC Miracle Fund is a beloved cross-Canada program that creates wonderful childhood memories for young people in care.

Currently operating in partnership with 13 child welfare agencies throughout Canada, the CIBC Miracle Fund provides grants of up to $400 per child to young people in care between the ages of 0 and 13. It covers items and fees that allow kids to participate in sports and recreational activities, arts and culture, and education-related experiences – life-enriching opportunities that have the power to change their lives.
Chloe entered foster care at the age of three. Four years later, she was adopted, but removed from that home due to abuse. Due to her traumatic past experiences, she's had difficulty trusting others. CIBC Miracle funds have provided her with the opportunity to attend horseback riding camp where she has connected with animals, and by doing so, been able to move towards healing and recovery. Although Chloe still faces challenges, she has made a deep and impactful connection with her volunteer, and is learning to trust and care for animals.
