Passion is palpable at the IWK.

A prime example: This past March, employees mobilized to create this “happy” experience in the IWK Gallery on the first day of spring. It had been a long, snowy winter, and they wanted to spread some happiness. Watch here for a glimpse of IWK passion. At the IWK, we live our core values and beliefs; they aren’t just signage in a lobby or “About Us” website content.  Our commitment to the cause – to the best care and health of children, youth, women and families is palpable across our organization.
