How do I set up a My Compassion account?

Last Updated: April 28, 2014 4:15 pm

To set up your My Compassion account, visit and click “Sign Up”.

Enter your Supporter Number. Your supporter number is on every piece of correspondence you receive from Compassion Canada. Your number appears below the barcode attached to letters from your sponsored child, and beside your name on the letter writing paper included with every child letter (on the right side of the page). Your number may start with CA, usually followed by seven to eight digits and may include a dash. Remove the CA and the dash and enter all the digits and click “validate.”

You will receive a validation email that will provide you with a link. When you click the link (or copy it into the address bar of your web browser), you will be taken to a page that automatically verifies your account. Create your own password and enter your Supporter Number one last time and you have completed creating an account!
