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.
