ST. MICHAEL'S CENTRE
We honour the human spirit, with a foundation of quality care, fiscal sustainability, leadership, and accountability.
In late 1974, the Anglican, United, and Roman Catholic Churches decided to create a warm and welcoming care centre in Burnaby open to persons of all backgrounds and faith traditions. St. Michael is recorded in the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic faiths as a protector and healing angel.
St. Michael’s Centre supports person-centred care by engaging our residents in daily living with meaningful activities and strong interpersonal connections.
St. Michael’s is the only hospice in Burnaby. The sensitive and specialized care provided to persons transitioning from life is arguably what St. Michael’s Centre is best known for in the community.

BE A PART OF GROWING OUR CARING COMMUNITY
For the past twenty two years, St. Michael’s Centre has been the most wonderful place to work. I truly enjoy the long-term relationships that are formed with staff, residents, their family members and volunteers.
As a long-term care home and not an acute care hospital, residents live here for months and years rather than just days at a time, leading to more job satisfaction, better relationships and overall better outcomes for residents and staff alike.
Because the emphasis is on being a home, not a health care facility, residents feel like family rather than clients or patients.
