About Us

We believe that every child deserves to smile, no matter what circumstances they face. Over a single weekend, our team transforms an existing waiting room, treatment room or patient care room into a Smilezone! A Smilezone provides a bright, comforting, and engaging space for children and their families while spending time in a hospital or medical facility. Our Smilezones are custom designed with features such as fresh paint, murals, furniture, cabinetry and storage, sensory items, interactive technology such as iPads/Televisions/Projectors/Video Games, and much more! We work closely with the health care centre’s frontline staff to come up with a unique design that is guaranteed to bring a smile to kids’ faces!

As fathers themselves, Adam and Scott wanted to do something that would help...
