At Canuck Place we believe that every life is precious and should be lived to its fullest.
Canuck Place Children’s Hospice first opened its doors in November 1995, to become North America’s first free-standing children’s hospice. We responded to the need for a hospice created specifically for children. Today we have two provincial locations in Vancouver and Abbotsford to deliver Canuck Place care which includes medical respite, pain and symptom management, art, music, and recreation therapy, end-of-life care, and grief, loss, and bereavement counselling. All at no cost to families.
Recognized internationally as leaders in the field of pediatric palliative care, the need for our services has grown exponentially over the years. Thanks to the dedication of our staff and volunteers, and our extended team of corporate, community and government partners, we are able to make a difference in the lives of more children and families in need throughout BC.
Canuck Place Children’s Hospice offers an environment rooted in community and clinical expertise. Our interdisciplinary team works hand-in-hand, out of our two provincial locations in Abbotsford and Vancouver, to deliver the highest quality pediatric palliative care and raise funds to continually grow and refine our program.
Join our innovative team who celebrate the power of connection, make time to invest in moments, and challenge ourselves to provide the best pediatric palliative care possible.
Canuck Place offers competitive compensation and benefits with a focus on total wellness. From health and wellness programs to continuing education, Canuck Place believes the strength of our team grows from a foundation of self-care and work-life balance.
