Thank You!

to our Supportive Community; who help make what we do possible

At Galiano Health Care Centre, we are incredibly grateful for the support and dedication of our island community. From board members and volunteer drivers to friendly visitors and mental health advocates, it is because of your commitment that we can provide quality medical care to Galiano Island residents and visitors.
We also want to extend our appreciation to the cookie bakers for the Seniors Social Program, whose delicious treats bring joy to our seniors. Every action, every dollar, and every volunteer hour makes a difference in meeting the changing health and social needs within our community.
We would like to thank Galiano for your ongoing support, whether it be through donations of time or funds – your contribution helps us continue our mission. Join us in making a difference by becoming a donor, a volunteer, or a member. Together, we can ensure the continued success of the Galiano Health Care Centre.

Thank you to all who attend the wine festival and donate items for the silent auction, the cooks, the cleaners and especially the Lions!
