To protect the health and safety of our entire community, while also ensuring Santa is in top condition, all visits with Santa will be virtual this year. Together with our partners, Autism Speaks Canada has created one-of-a-kind Sensitive Santa Virtual Experience arranged specifically for individuals with autism and their family members. We hope you enjoy a magical one-on-one virtual visit with Santa from the comfort of your own home. Your children will love the opportunity to tell Santa how good they have been this year and ask Santa some questions!

Thank you to our partners for their continued support
