Our Mission


Our mission is to create a collaborative, resource-rich online community for child life, so that they are better able to provide the highest quality of care to children and families facing healthcare challenges.

Canadian Child Life Institute

The Canadian Child Life Institute (CCLI) is the first international child life initiative of its kind. The CCLI will be a psychosocial-based collaborative research and best practices initiative among the leading children’s hospitals across Canada and ultimately, the worldwide community of child life and pediatric professionals. The establishment of the CCLI will position Canada as a global leader within the pediatric healthcare community.
