Family Advisory Council (FAC) members

Canuck Place is seeking more family representatives to join the FAC. This is an opportunity for families to share their perspectives with our senior leadership, Board of Directors, and clinical and communications/fundraising teams. There are 9 meetings each year. Meetings begin at 6 p.m. and occur on the second Thursday of every month. The usual term commitment of members is a maximum of 3 years. Members can participate in person, phone, or Zoom. All are welcome from across BC and the Yukon. We aim for equitable, diverse, inclusive representation that is culturally safe.

Featured family storytelling

We partner with families to share their stories and help support fundraising for Canuck Place care. Family storytelling helps us provide information on pediatric palliative care, the impact this care has on families, and why donor support is important. Our family partners are featured in communications and marketing materials throughout the year, including social media, website, print media, videos, digital ads, and more.

If you have questions about what’s involved in sharing your Canuck Place experience, please email Lisa Pratt for more information.



Interested in getting involved?

Complete this form and we’ll be in touch about the different opportunities as they arise. As always, we are deeply grateful for your willingness to share your story.

How can you help?

There are so many ways to give. You can support complex care for children with life-threatening illnesses and families in BC and the Yukon. With your help, Canuck Place will support them in living the end of life as fully as the beginning.
