Home > The Need for Honour House

Our Mission is Never Over

Honour House provides a free of charge, temporary home for members of our Canadian Armed Forces, Veterans and Emergency Services Personnel and their families while they travel to receive medical care and treatment in the Metro Vancouver Area.

Members of our Military and Police Officers, Fire Fighters, Paramedics, Corrections Officers, Sheriffs, Coast Guards, Emergency Dispatchers, Search and Rescue, Border Guards, Conservation Officers and retired members of all of these groups along with immediate family members (wives, husbands, common law partners and their children) are all welcome to stay at Honour House free of charge. These brave men and women, along with their families, sacrifice so much to protect our freedom and our everyday way of life, each and every day. Honour House allows us the opportunity to show our support and appreciation for their selfless sacrifice.

Honour House is proud to support some of our bravest Canadians and their families by providing them with a “home away from home” where they can recuperate and forget about the financial stresses associated with their need to leave home for treatment. Since September 2011 Honour House has saved our guests hundreds of thousands of dollars in out of pocket costs in accommodation fees.

Suffering from any form of serious illness is a very stressful event in anyone’s life. Consider a person who’s day to day job involves some of the most tense and stressful situations imaginable and then include a serious illness for them or a member of their family. On top of all of this they then have to leave behind their homes and the support of their friends and family as they travel to an unfamiliar city for treatment. Providing a free, safe and comfortable  place of recovery for some of our bravest Canadians is the very least that we can do.
