The World’s Largest Sandbox is The Sandbox Project’s signature annual event to raise awareness of the importance of collaborating and investing in the health and wellbeing of Canada's children. For the fifth year in a row, the World’s Largest Sandbox will bring together Parliamentarians, media personalities, not for profit organizations and industry professionals in a giant sandbox with local children and school groups for an exciting sandcastle-building competition!

This event is free to the public. We also invite organizations working in child and youth health and wellbeing to join us in the sandbox for informal networking, opportunities for public engagement, and fun as we celebrate the impact of individuals and organizations across Canada who are working together to create meaningful change. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact us.
