About CHAS

CHAS has been a supporter of the Alberta Children’s Hospital since its inception. CHAS has supported structural improvements, equipment, research, programs and general well being of children.

In the community, CHAS has supported children’s groups, provided health and learning needs, equipment, structural improvements and long-standing camperships for all to have fun.

CHAS has raised and donated in excess of $9.8 million in the past 40 years.
