Episode Summary

This episode is a very special interview for host Mark Therriault. Two months ago, he went to the Himalayas and climbed Merra Peak, a 22,000ft mountain, to raise money for Canuck Place Children’s Hospice — a charity that provides pediatric palliative care for kids in B.C. Mark did the climb after watching his best friend and wife lose their young daughter to heart disease, and then experience the amazing care and support Canuck Place provided their family.

Margaret McNeil, the CEO of Canuck Place joins Mark on The Wealth Exchange. She is committed to community and has a background in the public sector. In previous roles, she was the VP of Operations at BC Housing, led the Mental Health and Addictions program at Vancouver Island Health Authority, and has led a variety of policy initiatives and programs for various aspects of health including home and community care in B.C.

In this episode, Mark and Margaret talk about the amazing work that Canuck Place does; their biggest challenges; their main focuses; and how they function, from providing space for families to receive inpatient care, to how they connect with prospective families. Margaret also talks about how staff and volunteers manage working in such a rewarding but emotionally difficult environment, what she loves most about her role at Canuck Place, and personal stories and touching experiences she’s had while working there.

Nicola Wealth Management and Canuck Place have a close relationship, with Nicola Wealth having supported Canuck Place for well over 12 years.
