Thank you!


Your contributions to the 2021 Lights of Hope have helped us raise more than $3.6 million to meet the greatest needs of patients and residents at St. Paul’s Hospital and Providence Health Care hospitals and long-term care homes across BC.


Since 1998, Lights of Hope has raised more than $47 million, funding urgently needed equipment, life-saving research, community programs, medical teaching initiatives, and other essential patient and resident services that would otherwise not be funded through traditional channels.



  • 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.
