A need for pediatric palliative care

Canuck Place Children’s Hospice opened its doors in November 1995, responding to the need for pediatric palliative care. As North America’s first free-standing children’s hospice, we are recognized internationally as leaders in pediatric palliative care. The need for our services has grown exponentially over the years, and we now have two locations serving the province of BC—in Vancouver and Abbotsford.

Our program includes pain and symptom management, medical respite, education and art, music and recreation therapy, end-of-life care, and grief and bereavement counselling. All at no cost to families.

As a non-profit organization, our extended team includes corporate, community, and government partners. Thanks to them, our dedicated staff, and generous volunteers, we make a profound difference to a growing number of children and families throughout BC and the Yukon.
