Meet the Winner.

We’ve received many great nominations of not-for-profits for Aprio’s Good Governance for All Awards.
Congratulations to our winner!

Canuck Place is one of 6 free standing pediatric hospices in Canada, with a 16-member board.

Organization Impact

Canuck Place provides medical care and support for 670 children with life threatening illnesses and their families at their most vulnerable times; delivers care 24/7, end of life care and bereavement support.

Governance Needs

The volunteer Board meets in person or by dialing in from various locations in BC. Meetings are complex to manage, given the financial, quality of care, and risk management requirements.

Potential Benefits

Aprio would provide easier and more consistent access to Board materials, tracking progress. With 16 Board members and 6 committees, Canuck Place has the familiar complexity of running a not-for-profit.

Words from the winner…

Canuck Place helps children with life threatening illnesses and their families. Anything we can do to operate efficiently and engage great board members improves our impact. Thanks Aprio!

Nominators comments…

The organization works so hard to run a productive board. It’s great to see their effort and the board’s ability to stay up-to-date and contribute is about to get easier.
