73-bedroom House

After seven years of planning and two years of construction, the new Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon opened to serve families on July 7, 2014.

Since 1983, we have opened our doors and arms to overwhelmed families who travel to Vancouver in search of life-saving treatment for their seriously ill child. More than just a place to stay, RMH BC is a place for families to heal better, together.

Our House on Angus Drive could accommodate 13 families each night, but the demand for our services was much greater. That’s why we built a new House on the grounds of BC Children’s Hospital which will serve 73 families each night – that’s almost 2,000 families in need each year!

Our new House was made possible by the generosity of BC and Yukon residents. Help us keep families close when it matters most.

House Features

Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon was designed with families in mind. Our key concern was to make our House a ‘home’ even as we increased in size, so we divided it into four homelike Pavilions (Forest, Beach, Mountain, and River), each with their own kitchens and cozy common lounges.

In addition, Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon offers:

All of these great amenities are only steps from BC Children’s Hospital.

Save-On-Foods Pantry Program

We are thrilled to partner with Save-On-Foods to provide a new pantry program for our families. Each week, Save-On-Foods delivers a donation of food, beverages, and household products to help stock our home away from home and assist families experiencing hardship.

Thank you to Save-On-Foods for helping to ensure our families’ comfort while staying with us.
