Funding and Costs

  • The Kiwanis Pavilion has 116 rooms which are subsidized by Island Health. Residents in subsidized rooms pay a monthly accommodation fee which is set by the B.C. Ministry of Health Services and reviewed and adjusted annually by Island Health.
  • Most medications are covered under Pharmacare, but some medications and medical supplies are charged to the resident.
  • Some residents may receive partial funding support for medication, equipment and supplies from Veterans Affairs Canada or a private extended health program.
  • In addition to the basic services, The Kiwanis Pavilion offers a number of optional services which require payment of additional fees. These services are provided at a cost at or below market rates, and most are at the discretion of the resident and/or their power of attorney for finances. Examples of additional services include: personal clothing marking, hairdressing and barber services; bus outings; telephone, television and internet connections; and the provision of uninsured health care services, such as custom mobility and specialized equipment, cleaning and repairs, nursing foot care, and dental hygiene services.

The Kiwanis Pavilion is accredited through Accreditation Canada.
