We have been busy this summer planning a big surprise!

Come to the Grand Opening of the four new Smilezones at Woodview and see the transformation for yourself!

Smilezone’s mission is to make tough days a little brighter for kids receiving treatment. They do this by creating fun and engaging “Smilezones” that harness the uplifting power of a smile for the kids and their families.

Join us for this special event which will feature Smilezone Celebrity Ambassador and American professional hockey player Megan Bozek.

Join us for a tour of the four new Smilezones at Woodview’s Head Office!
  • Main Entrance
  • Hallway
  • Family Room

This project is being completed thanks to the generous donation of the Smilezone Foundation, Vic Hadfield Table Hockey Challenge, and the Rotary Club of Oakville, and will feature beautiful murals, custom cabinetry and seating, and a space that is inviting, bright, friendly, and calming for clients and their families.

We’re delighted to combine this exciting event with our Annual General Meeting which will feature the unveiling of our new Sensory Room generously donated by Jeanne Durant!

Come and see what’s new at Woodview!
