Canuck Place in Vancouver is housed in a building called Glen Brae built in 1910 by a lumber baron named William Tait. As you walk up to the hospice you will find that Canuck Place is very much like a home. It is our desire to all the children and families to feel as much like they are at home as possible.
Not sure what to expect when you arrive at Canuck Place? We’ve created a virtual tour to showcase both of our beautiful houses. Take a 3D tour of Dave Lede House in Abbotsford…
