VANCOUVER, BC (NOVEMBER 1, 2023) FirstService Residential, Metro Vancouver’s leading property management company, has kicked off it’s tenth annual holiday campaign in support of Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. Over the last nine years, FirstService Residential with the help of their trusted vendors and associates, has raised an incredible $877,000 for Canuck Place. This year they hope to add $123,000 to that total.

"We are thrilled to launch our tenth annual holiday fundraising campaign and to continue supporting such a remarkable organization,” said Linh Doyle, Regional Director & Associate Broker at FirstService Residential. “We are confident that our campaign will see us hit the milestone of raising one million dollars for Canuck Place over the course of our partnership. Something our entire organization is so proud of.”

“The holiday campaign supporting Canuck Place is something our team looks forward to every year. The work they do for so many families in BC is inspirational, and we are happy to lend a helping hand in any way that we can,” said Chris Churchill, President at FirstService Residential. “I am positive that this is going to be our most successful year to date.”

With the pandemic largely behind us, Canuck Place’s inpatient admissions have returned to pre-pandemic levels. In fact, this past year alone, Canuck Place has experienced a 33% increase in in-patient admissions of children requiring pediatric palliative care and a 27% increase in counselling sessions supporting families through incredibly challenging circumstances. However, the demand for virtual care and coordination of caregivers in remote areas of BC continues to rise, making Canuck Place’s virtual offerings permanent. The money raised during this year’s campaign will help Canuck Place to continue to provide these important in-patient and virtual services. But most importantly, it will help Canuck Place provide their patients and families with lasting, positive memories despite the circumstances.

“I’ve watched this incredible partnership with FirstService Residential grow each year, and I’m consistently amazed and honoured by the support from this community. They help us ease suffering, and give families and children precious memories together,” said Jennifer Polci, Managing Director, Development at Canuck Place. “It is my hope this season that they feel immense pride in what they make possible, as together we celebrate what will hopefully be a milestone year for this campaign. Thank you, from our big and little hearts, to FirstService Residential and to every partner who participates in this campaign.”
