the first partner to hit this milestone in Canada
Helping Canadians Live Better
Walmart Canada’s extensive philanthropy program is focused on supporting Canadian families in need, and since 1994 Walmart Canada has raised and donated more than $500 million to Canadian charities.
Walmart raises funds through at-cash donations, corporate donations, canister programs, vendor campaigns, and Children’s Miracle Network sponsorships. Walmart is not only our largest partner, but one of our longest standing partnerships.
Walmart has partnered with Children’s Miracle Network since opening its doors in Canada in 1994, and has raised over $130 million for Canadian children’s hospitals. In 2018, Walmart celebrated raising $1 billion for Children’s Miracle Network (Canada and US combined), making this the largest ever contribution from an organization to a charity.
