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 the province's pediatric palliative care provider. The hospice is a 16,000 square foot facility designed to offer comprehensive healthcare in a home-like environment. It features an art room, a fully wheelchair accessible playground, clinical care floor, 4 family suites, play therapy and school room.

CPCH offers BC's children with life-threatening illnesses, as well as 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 2013-2014 CPCH provided care to more than 560 children and families. Its current goal is to double the amount of provincial pediatric palliative care by opening a second location in Abbotsford. During phase 2 of the Abbotsford 4-phase plan CPCH began operating community-centred services, including physician consultation visits, bereavement support groups and recreational therapy. CPCH is currently working to furnish the Abbotsford location in order to open some of the patient beds and family suites in 2016. CPCH hopes to see full occupancy and operation of all programs at this location by 2017, after which Canuck Place will have a total of 18 patient beds and 9 family suites.
