We aspire to give wisely with a youthful and adventurous spirit. By helping charities registered with the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA), our goals include:

Investing in the people and charitable groups that make a difference.
Maximizing the usefulness of our involvement.
“Honda Canada Foundation’s ongoing support and investment is critical in our ability to deliver our mission of granting life-changing wishes to children with critical illnesses. Their commitment and strong belief in the life-changing work we do has helped grant over 150 wishes and has had a direct and positive impact on courageous wish kids and their families across Canada. Thanks to Honda’s past support over the last decade, and their ongoing dedication to help grant wishes now and in the future, together we will continue to create hope for children living with critical illnesses.”
Meaghan Stovel McKnight, CEO Make-A-Wish
In The Community
We’re committed to giving back to communities where Canadians live, work and play. No matter the size of the contribution, we give back to the people who’ve welcomed us to their communities. It’s more than building goodwill, being a part of the community or being recognized for our support. It’s about building a better society together.
