Give hope.
For today and tomorrow.

For the past two decades, your donations have supported the life-changing work being done at St. Paul’s and other Providence Health Care sites. This year, your contributions will also support the future of St. Paul’s at the Jim Pattison Medical Centre.

Lights of Hope donations directly support all Providence Health Care sites, funding urgently needed equipment, life-saving research, community programs, and other essential patient and resident services that would otherwise not be funded through traditional channels.


Community Celebration

The Lights of Hope at St. Paul’s will shine for the first time this year in a special celebration on November 14. We hope you can join us for the celebration!
Date: Thursday, November 14, 2019
Time: 6:00-8:00pm
Location: Burrard at Helmcken Street, Vancouver


  • Since 1998, we have recognized donors to Lights of Hope and inspired the community to show their support through a spectacular display of lights on St. Paul’s Hospital.

  • Today, Lights of Hope is a holiday tradition that brings hundreds of thousands of visitors to St. Paul’s to see the display.

  • The display is built by hundreds of volunteers using donated materials – including 10 kilometres of lights!

  • According to BC Hydro, despite its size and scope, Lights of Hope uses very little energy.

  • A big part of this energy efficiency is the use of LED bulbs, which account for 60% of the lights.

  • To operate the full display results in an energy bill of just $65 each night.
