Buy a Smile Cookie from April 29th to May 5th at a local Tim Hortons® Restaurant and support the HGH Foundation!

The Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Week is taking place from April 29th to May 5th this year! During this week, Tim Hortons chocolate chunk cookies will transform into something incredibly special: Smile Cookies – hand-decorated treats that raise money for local charities across the country.

The Smile Cookie program started in 1996, raising funds for Hamilton Children’s Hospital in Ontario. Twenty-eight years later, 100% of proceeds from each Smile Cookie is still donated to charities from coast-to-coast-to-coast, supporting the communities in which the restaurants operate. In 2023, more than 625 different charities benefitted from the weeklong campaign and a record-breaking number of cookies were sold!

This year, local Tim Hortons restaurant owner, Mr. Paul Burke, has chosen to once again support the HGH Foundation’s current fundraising campaign, There’s No Place Like Home.

This campaign will support the purchase of essential medical equipment needed to bring new services to HGH like advanced 3D mammography, and will enable access to more specialty care, closer to home. The focus is on enhancing services in orthopedic surgery, urology, ophthalmology. For more information on this campaign, please visit There’s No Place Like Home.

100% of the proceeds from every freshly baked chocolate chunk Smile Cookie purchased from April 29th to May 5th from the Tim Hortons restaurants in Hawkesbury, L’Orignal, and Vankleek Hill will be donated to the HGH Foundation.

How can you show your support during the Smile Cookie campaign?

There are two ways you can participate in Smile Cookie week:

1)    Visit your local participating Tim Hortons between April 29th and May 5th and buy a Smile Cookie for $1.50 (plus tax).

2)    Or, you can pre-order a box of Smile Cookies by downloading and filling out an order form in advance, and dropping it off at your local Tims. Pre-orders must be made 48 hours in advance. Download the Smile Cookies order form.

Why is Smile Cookie so important?

The Smile Cookie campaign is a great way for Tims guests and restaurant owners to give back to their communities. 100% of funds raised through the sale of Smile Cookies go directly to local charities selected by restaurant owners, including the HGH Foundation. Your support will help ensure that your loved ones can receive specialty medical care at HGH without the need to travel elsewhere!

Every Smile Cookie is as unique as the people, charities, and communities they help.

Tim Hortons has been raising funds for local charities for 28 years. Last year, Tim Hortons restaurants raised a record breaking $19.7 million for over 625 local charities and community groups – an incredible accomplishment contributing to the Smile Cookie legacy of over $100 million raised since the program’s inception.



In 1964, the first Tim Hortons® restaurant in Hamilton, Ontario opened its doors and Canadians have been ordering Tim Hortons iconic Original Blend coffee, Double-Double ™ coffees, Donuts and Timbits® in the years since. Over the years, Tim Hortons has captured the hearts and taste buds of Canadians. Tim Hortons is now proud to be Canada’s largest restaurant chain serving over 5 million cups of coffee every day with 80% of Canadians visiting a Tims in Canada at least once a month. More than a coffee and bake shop, Tim Hortons is part of the fabric of Canada and a proud symbol of our country and its values. For more information visit
