About Canuck Place Children's Hospice:
Founded in 1995, the Canuck Place Children's Hospice (CPCH) was the first free-standing children's hospice in North America and is British Columbia’s pediatric palliative care provider. Its mission is to benefit all children and their families living with progressive life-threatening conditions with compassion, knowledge, and holistic clinical care. CPCH operates two facilities in Vancouver and Abbotsford.
Canuck Place Children’s Hospice offers BC's children with life-threatening illnesses and their families a range of services provincewide. CPCH provides clinical care, 24-hour provincewide phone consultation, respite and family support, end-of-life care, pain and symptom management for complex diseases, grief and loss counselling, art, education, music, and recreation therapy. CPCH also provides outpatient services such as medical and nursing consultation, family support and counselling, and runs the Madison Outpatient Clinic with BC Children's Hospital.
In F2016, Canuck Place Children’s Hospice provided care to more than 670 children and families. 2,101 patient beds were occupied and 81 children received end-of-life care. The respite and family support provided 2,897 overnight stays for siblings and parents. 1,254 children and families attended bereavement group counselling and 622 attended recreation therapy camps. Finally, 424 music therapy sessions were held. CPCH is currently working to expand the services at the Abbotsford location to have a total of 9 patient beds and 5 family suites by 2017.
According to its 2016 family satisfaction survey, 96% of bereaved families were satisfied or very satisfied with the care and support given to their child and themselves.
Ci has consolidated the financial statements of Canuck Place Children's Hospice and Canuck Place Children's Hospice Foundation. CPCH is a big-cap charity with annual donations of $7.8m in F2016. The charity’s T3010A CRA filing does not reconcile with the audited financial statements. Furthermore, CPCH’s audited financial statements do not allocate costs to programs, administration, and fundraising, so this information is from their T3010A filing. CPCH's administrative costs were 10% of revenues, while fundraising costs were 33% of donations. For every dollar donated, 56 cents go towards the cause, CPCH’s programs, not factoring in CPCH’s surplus in F2016. This is below Ci’s reasonable range. In F2016, CPCH had funding reserves of $16.6m, which cover 2.2 years of annual program costs, showing a moderate need for donations.
