We are also the community entity for the BC Region on behalf of the federal government and the urban Aboriginal community delivering ‘Housing First’ funds under the National Housing Initiative to urban Aboriginal organizations who service the needs of the Aboriginal homeless community."
The Aboriginal Patients’ Lodge is the first of its kind in BC! We serve over 400 guests per year coming to Vancouver from communities across the province for surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, pregnancy, transplant operation, diagnostic tests, and appointments. Our patient guests range in age from infants to elders. Our Lodge is the top choice for long term patients who need to cook for their special diet and heal during treatment.
