Our Hospices

Serving children and families across British Columbia from two locations.

Canuck Place – Vancouver

Canuck Place Children’s Hospice was built in 1995 and is nestled within the beautiful, serene community of Shaughnessy in Vancouver. This 16,000 sq ft mansion was refurbished to deliver complex clinical care while retaining the character of the house built in 1910. There are 9 patient beds and 4 family suites, along with a many other modern amenities.

Canuck Place - Dave Lede House

Canuck Place – Dave Lede House is our second provincial facility. Located in Abbotsford, this purpose-built facility reflects the warm, family environment that is characteristic of Canuck Place with updated amenities. Currently, Dave Lede House operates 4 patient beds and 4 family suites.

The house is located on a 1.5 acre site adjacent to Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre, and forms part of the Campus of Care with the Abbotsford Hospice Society’s Holmberg House (an adult hospice) and Matthew’s House (a respite home for children with complex health care needs) operated by Communitas Supportive Care Society.

The Dave Lede House Phase Plan

In May 2018, Canuck Place introduced inpatient care at Dave Lede House with 4 patient beds and 4 family suites to complement the already active outpatient program. Inpatient care is currently operating every other weekend with the move to 24/7 in 2019.

This expansion of care is only possible with the community of donors that support Canuck Place children and families every day.
