  • Anyone can write the dream letter, as long as it reflects the applicant’s dream.
  • The applicant must be able to communicate their dream; an unconscious or unresponsive person does not qualify. Exceptions may be considered on a case-by-case basis, such as a request to help family travel to be with their loved one.

We will work to complete the application process as quickly as possible, and typically this process can be completed within one week. This is followed by the verification process, which can take a few days to several weeks depending on the response time of the Medical Advisory Committee. Once the dream request is approved, we ask that recipients please allow two weeks to arrange air travel and other accommodations. We cannot rush dream requests for reasons other than medical necessity.

Urgent Dream requests are processed the business day they are received and verified as soon as possible.

There is no set income qualification, but our mission is to help those who cannot fulfill their dream on their own. Some dream requests do not require financial support (e.g., meeting a celebrity).

We look at each application individually and take into consideration taxable income, how many people live in the household, geographic location, and financial hardship. If the dream applicant does not file taxes, we ask that they provide a copy of their Notice of Assessment for the most recent tax year or other proof of annual income (e.g., pay stub, social assistance or disability statement, or a bank statement from the past 30 days).
