Keeping families of seriously ill children together and close to the care they need.

Ronald McDonald House Charities® Toronto (RMHC Toronto) is part of a network of 16 Ronald McDonald Houses and 17 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms across Canada. We provide a safe place to stay together for families of children who are seriously ill and being treated at nearby hospitals.

When families learn their child is seriously ill and must be hospitalized, life as they know it changes overnight. Families embark on what is an often unexpected and difficult journey full of uncertainty, worry, fear and hope.

65% of Canadians live outside of a city with a children’s hospital. When a child gets sick, most Canadian families must travel far from home for medical treatment. They are forced to leave their homes, jobs, and community, often causing significant emotional and financial stress.

RMHC Toronto encompasses a House for 81 families in downtown Toronto and seven Family Rooms in hospitals across the Greater Toronto Area and in Sudbury.

The families we serve come from throughout Ontario, across Canada, and around the world.

When the unimaginable happens, RMHC Toronto is there to help keep families together and close to their seriously ill child in hospital.

Why RMHC Toronto?

The financial and emotional burdens can be overwhelming on families with a seriously ill child. Since 1981, Ronald McDonald House Charities® Toronto has served as a place to call home for families with seriously ill children undergoing treatment.
