In order to apply or be nominated for a wish, applicants must be 70 years of age or older, and reside in Nova Scotia, Canada. This geographic criterion will change as our operations continue to grow throughout the Atlantic provinces and, in time, across Canada.
The wish process begins with an application that may be submitted by the wish applicant themselves, or by receiving a nomination for a wish by someone else. Once your application is received, our application committee follows a documented code of conduct, combined with regular auditing from a non-partial third party to ensure fairness and transparency throughout the entire approval process. Once a wish is accepted, its priority will be assessed on the accessibility of the wish, the overall expense of the wish, and the urgency of wish fulfillment based on the recipient’s life expectancy.
You can apply for a wish by filling out our online application form, by e-mailing the application to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by mailing the application to:
We Are Young Association
PO Box 25202
