Parking for Patients

Patients with cancer can park for free.

On March 4, 2022, the B.C. Ministry of Health brought back paid parking at all health authority sites to ensure spots are available for patients, staff, volunteers and visitors.

Free parking is available for patients who are onsite for cancer treatment, such as care team appointments, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, dental care, laboratory tests, and imaging related to treatment after this date.
