House Update

We continue to practice COVID-19 safety protocols including wellness checks and enhanced cleaning. From the information we’ve been given from various health authorities about the improving or stabilizing conditions of the pandemic, and in the efforts to serve all families in need, mandatory mask wearing in all common spaces and proof of vaccination for families within RMHBC programs is no longer required. Mandatory COVID-19 vaccination will remain in effect for all staff and volunteers and masks will be available for families who wish to wear them.

As always, we remain dedicated to the health and safety of families and thank our amazing community for helping us continue to support and uplift families during difficult times.

RMH BC Turns 40

RMH BC Turns 40

For 40 years and counting, RMH BC & Yukon has been a home away from home for seriously ill children and their families facing medical crises.
To celebrate our 40th Anniversary, we’ve taken inspiration from the sporting world, where brands look to sponsor teams and where people are dedicated in their support, and reimagined Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon as a football club: RMH United.
We are calling on you to donate so we can open our doors to more families with seriously ill children for another 40 years and beyond.

Why Do families need your help?

When a child is seriously ill, the specialization required for their major medical procedure may only be available far from home. Treatment for illnesses such as leukemia, brain tumours or cystic fibrosis requires lengthy out-of-town hospitalization.


RMH BC & Yukon provides accommodation for these families, so they can be close to their seriously ill children undergoing treatment. The House is a place of comfort, healing, and a home away from home for kids and families from all across BC and Yukon—like Prince George, Kamloops, Whitehorse and Victoria. But the cost to accommodate over 2000 families per year is expensive and isn’t possible without the generosity of people like you.

What stops families from being together?

What stops families from being together?

When the unthinkable happens and a family is uprooted for their child’s critical medical treatment, there are many barriers they must overcome to stay together. Hotel stays are expensive, siblings need to be cared for, and staying in the hospital long term is unsustainable. That’s where the House comes in—providing accommodation, comfort, compassion, and a sense of community to these families in need.

But caring for so many families is expensive and isn’t possible without the generosity of people just like you.
