About CDHF

Enhancing Community Wellness for Over 30 Years!

Our Mission Statement

Working with the community to raise funds to assist in covering costs for equipment and services which continue to enhance wellness, patient care and residential care at Talarico Place and at the Castlegar & District Community Health Centre.

Our History

The Castlegar & District Hospital Foundation has been actively fundraising for over thirty years and was officially incorporated under the Society Act of British Columbia on October 30, 1987. Through community support and donations we are able to purchase much-needed medical equipment for the Castlegar Health Centre Emergency Department, Medical Lab and X-ray Departments and Talarico Place.

The Foundation is a charitable organization registered under the Income Tax Act, and as such is exempt from income tax and is able to issue receipts for income tax purposes. The Foundation’s Registered BN is 88806 4938 RR0001.
