The Holiday Season Celebration is an annual event held for kids and families involved with child welfare. Often, its the only holiday celebration they may experience.

THANK YOU to all of our 2017 sponsors and donors for their support.

For most children the holidays are time of joy, celebration and being together with the ones they love. Unfortunately, for many children living in care and accessing child welfare services, the holidays are a difficult time full of disappointment, confusion and frustration. The Holiday Season Celebration is Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada’s longest standing enrichment initiative which has provided hope to tens of thousands of Toronto’s most vulnerable children and youth for over 30 years. For many of these children it is the only holiday celebration they will have.

Held every December.
