Foster Parents Plan is now Plan Canada.
Our name may have changed, but our mission is the same.

Sponsor a Child today

Founded in 1937 as Foster Parents Plan, we started out by providing direct aid to individual children and families. As our work grew and evolved over many decades, we learned that lasting change for children requires a plan for the entire community. In 2006, we simplified our name to Plan to better reflect how we work.


Today, we are one of the world’s oldest and largest international development agencies. Not for profit, independent and inclusive of all faiths and cultures, we have only one agenda: to improve the lives of children.


Please join us in changing the world.
