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.

Your impact in 2020/21
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.
Caring for children and their families is, and always will be, at the heart of the mission of Canuck Place. See what we’ve been working on and the impact of your donations. Together, we can give short lives the gift of great days.
