Being the only faith-based care home in British Columbia, which is founded jointly by three Christian denominations, makes St. Michael's Centre unique.

St. Michael's Centre provides exceptional care to 128 individuals who are experiencing complex and challenging health care needs.

On February 7th, 1992, St. Michael's Centre continued its tradition of excellence in care when it's 16-bed hospice was opened.

St Michaels Centre We Honour The Human Spirit

Dear families and donors,

As a valued friend of St. Michael’s Centre, we want to let you know that an important change is taking place.  Providence Health Care’s management contract with St. Michael’s Centre concluded this past spring. This means the relationship between St. Paul’s Foundation and St. Michael’s Centre is changing.  After a full year of discussion, we have concluded that as of March 31, 2020, St. Paul’s Foundation will no longer represent St. Michael’s Centre.  The St. Michael’s Centre Board of Directors is pleased to announce that we will be entering into a new partnership with Burnaby Hospital Foundation.  The Board extends its deepest appreciation to the St. Paul’s Foundation for their support in raising funds for our elders at St. Michael’s Centre, and for assisting St. Michael’s Centre to transition to Burnaby Hospital Foundation.  Burnaby Hospital Foundation has been serving the Burnaby community since 1982.  Burnaby Hospital Foundation and St. Michael’s Centre will work in partnership to provide services across a continuum of care for elders in the Burnaby Community.

You can still give to St. Michael’s Centre through the St. Paul’s Foundation until March 31, 2020.  As of April 1, 2020, your donations to St. Michael’s Centre will go through Burnaby Hospital Foundation.  Thank you in advance for your invaluable support!


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.

St Michaels Centre 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.

We are always looking for dedicated individuals who are able and willing to volunteer their time to support our residents.
