At World Vision Canada, our mission stays the same year after year – to help bring life in all its fullness to the most vulnerable girls and boys. Together, we work to foster lasting change in the communities we partner with by providing the resources they need for self-sufficient living.

We’re always looking at the bigger picture by evaluating the results of our efforts, identifying areas of strength and opportunities for growth while protecting the trust of the families we serve and the donors who continuously support us and our work.

The 2023 Annual Sponsorship Results Report is now available for viewing! See how far we’ve come, the challenges we faced, our resolutions, and our goals for the year ahead.

Frequently Asked Questions

We strongly encourage you to write to your sponsored child. Children love to hear from their sponsors and often treasure the letters and photos that are sent.

When writing to your sponsored child, please use the World Vision national office address located in the picture folder for your sponsored child. All correspondence must include:

  • World Vision's national office address (exactly as it appears) on the front of the envelope.
  • Your sponsored child's name and child ID number on the back flap of your envelope and on the top of your letter. Please do not write your address inside the letter. Your letters may reach your sponsored child in a few weeks, but the response time can be quite long for some countries – up to six months, in some cases.

Definitely – but please send simple gifts tucked into your letters and cards. Flat items such as photos, bookmarks, stamps or stickers, in an envelope no bigger than 6” x 9”, are ideal. Please don't send parcels or cash. Your sponsored child's picture folder — which you received in your welcome package — contains all the address details that you need.

Yes, you can email sponsored children in some communities. To do this, you will need to create a My World Vision account by clicking the "Create an Account" link at the top of the page. If you need help, please contact us online or give us a call at 1.866.595.5550.
