IHOP Restaurants will celebrate its seventh annual IHOP National Pancake Day in Canada on Tuesday, February 25, by inviting guests to enjoy a complimentary short stack (limit one per guest) of IHOP’s world-famous buttermilk pancakes from 7 am – 7 pm at participating IHOP Restaurants.
In return, guests are encouraged to make a difference in the community by giving a voluntary donation to benefit the local Children’s Miracle Network member hospital.
Since the first National Pancake Day in Canada in 2014, guests have generously donated more than $425,000 for their local Children’s Miracle Network member hospitals.
National Pancake Day began in the United States in 2006 and has raised more than $30 million for children’s health. National Pancake Day is also celebrated in Mexico, Panama, and Puerto Rico.
Guests may also contribute to Children’s Miracle Network by purchasing a wall icon for $1, $5, $20, or $100 between now and February 25.
Guests who purchase a $5 wall icon will receive a $5 coupon toward their next meal of $10 or more (valid at participating restaurants only).

Did you know?
Pancake Day is a tradition that dates back several centuries to when the English prepped for fasting during Lent.
Strict rules prohibited the eating of all dairy products during Lent, so pancakes were made to use up the supply of eggs, milk, butter and other dairy products hence the name Pancake Tuesday, or Shrove Tuesday.
