Canuck Place expands services in Abbotsford

Breakfast with Friends event celebrates growth of facility

Canuck Place Children’s Hospice hosted donors, sponsors and supporters at A Breakfast with Friends at their second provincial location, Canuck Place – Dave Lede House in Abbotsford to celebrate the expansion of clinical services which now includes the opening of medical beds.

The event occurred on June 6 in Abbotsford.

“This expansion of care wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of the Fraser Valley community,” said Canuck Place CEO Margaret McNeil. “We’re so grateful for our donors and community partners who have supported Canuck Place care out of Dave Lede House and we’re thrilled that it now includes inpatient care and an increase in community services.”

This event honoured the cherished community of Canuck Place donors in the Fraser Valley who have made this expansion possible with a home-cooked meal in the Canuck Place kitchen, an interactive panel discussion with the Canuck Place clinical team, as well as remarks from City of Abbotsford Mayor Henry Braun, the MLA Mike de Jong and local Canuck Place parent, Hope Cholette whose son Jack recently received inpatient care at the hospice.

For the past few years, Canuck Place – Dave Lede House has operated much-needed outpatient care and community services. This expansion includes inpatient care at the Abbotsford hospice with four medical beds and four family suites, as well as an increase in clinical consultations in the home to support families where they need it the most.
