The Ambulance Paramedics Of BC – CUPE Local 873 is proud to be associated with the Honour House Society.
Honour House Society is an independent registered charity whose objective to provide free interim accommodation for the families of Canadian Forces and first responders (ambulance, fire, law enforcement) while members of these services are receiving care in Metro Vancouver.
To honour the contribution and service our first responders and Canadian Forces have made to our nation, we have named this residence “Honour House”.
Honour House is a place of refuge and composure where families may stay close together. Members of the Canadian Forces and first responders may recover knowing that there is a place close by where a degree of family life can be maintained.
