How is Canuck Place funded?

We rely on the generosity of individuals, companies, community partners, and the provincial government.

For almost three decades, the Canucks for Kids Fund has brightened days with funding (annually about 4% of our overall operating), player and mascot visits (hi Fin!) and event tickets.

Simply put, your support ensures children receive the care they need, where and when they need it.

Where does the money go?

We work with families to navigate all stages of a child’s illness.

But children aren’t just little adults—they’re kids. Recreation therapy creates moments to remember. Play, art, and music therapy help children and siblings express and process complicated feelings.

We also help children and families find the courage to face the unknown, with end-of-life care and grief and bereavement support.

Life-threatening illnesses don’t stop in a pandemic. In 2021/22, we increased our services while also taking pandemic measures to support a safe environment for children, families, staff, and volunteers. We continue to see an increasing demand in the need for our services, and we are grateful to the donors who make our program possible.
