Compassion Canada is currently working with our global partners to find the best ways to open up travel again to the countries that we work. We appreciate your patience while we take into consideration the safety and security of the children and their families we work with. Once in-person travel resumes, we will remove this message and start taking requests.

If you have any questions, please contact the Field Experience team at 1-800-563-5437 or

Why a custom visit?

We call them Custom Visits because each one is unique. You can choose where you meet your Compassion child, who comes with you and when you travel. You can craft your own special experience, and we will work hard to help you make it the best it can be.
