Incorporating a diverse range of offerings that encompass vital areas such as mental health counseling. Individuals from various walks of life can benefit from the support and assistance we provide.

Providing Connectivity

About Us

Our Story

The Healing Wings Foundation was founded during the pandemic in 2020 by a group of community leaders and entrepreneurs in the Greater Toronto Area. We saw a need for helping those struggling with mental illness especially in remote arctic communities in Canada’s north with limited access to connectivity.

This need eventually grew to reach other individuals in need struggling with similar issues. This included first responders, men and women in uniform, and First Nations. Services were offered to these groups during 2020 and 2021.

Our services were initially funded by these same community leaders, doctors, lawyers, and businessmen. By June 2022, Healing Wings officially obtained its CRA Registered Charity status and continues to provide services today.

Registered Charity No. 71521 9135 RR0001


Although we have four pillars, our main mission is to focus on providing mental health services to those in need. We provide mental health counseling for anyone in need throughout Canada; whether that be First Nations in remote arctic communities; men and women in uniform; youth in shelters across the GTA, or veterans receiving medical treatment. We are focused on providing mental health counseling online through our partnership with Inkblot Therapy. 

We aim to improve the Quality of Life for people in uniform during times of medical need, for those in need, or for people who live in remote and arctic communities in Canada without access to connectivity during and post pandemic. We offer select assistance in an accessible, convenient and rewarding manner, and by doing so, our ultimate goal is not only to relieve poverty and increase access to connectivity in communities, but also to promote public health, as well as offer care, and guidance to support those in need.

Future Projects

Upcoming Initiatives​

We plan to offer subsidized accommodation to uniformed heroes (military, paramedics, police officers, fire-fighters, and other first-responders) and their families while they receive medical treatment. This is a project that will be implemented in the coming years as we are awaiting the building of the facility in New Market in collaboration with the Trinity Coptic Foundation.

We intend to expand our social services to offer family and marriage counseling, pro-bono legal assistance and vocational training in the future as we grow and expand our projects and reach.

What we do

Featured Projects​

Since Healing Wings’ inception in 2020, we have launched multiple programs of providing connectivity and goods to shelters. While doing so, we obtained support from community partners who helped Healing Wings obtain official registered charity status by the Canada Revenue Agency.
