Auxiliary to UHNBC


The Auxiliary to University Hospital of Northern B.C. has been an integral part of the hospital since 1919 except  during the war years when it was not actively functioning. We are a non-profit community based society that is committed to the enhancement of health care in our hospital. Our strength lies with our members who dedicate their time, support and knowledge in one of our many services.

To provide resources, volunteers and funding.
To foster and promote the well-being and comfort of patients.
To provide scholarships and bursaries to students attending public post-secondary Institutions.
To operate a Thrift Shop and Gift Shop to generate income to support the above purposes.

A New Auxiliary Service


Image result for image patient food tray

The dietary staff at UHNBC is trying hard to make the patients' stay in hospital as pleasant as possible.  The Auxiliary has been asked to help. The service is about trying to cut waste as well as trying to give patients their choices of what appears on their food tray. We visit the new patients and go over their choices then return them to the dietary department. The Auxiliary is still needing volunteers to help in this service, so if you are a people person and like to spend time with patients, this might just be the service for you.  Please fill out the application forms found on the website if you'd like to help out!!


Thank You to our Thrift Shop Volunteers

The Auxiliary to UHNBC is proud to recognize the hard work of the volunteers who run our Thrift Shop!!  They service the downtown community from their store near the corner of Victoria Street and 3rd Avenue.  They accept donations of all kinds of household items including clothing, dishes, books, jewellry and much much more.  All proceeds from the amazing bargains found in the shop, go directly to the Auxiliary to help support funding projects for the hospital.  They are open 10-4 Monday to Saturday.  A special thank you to their hard working leader Bette Marshall.  This dedicated lady puts in many volunteer hours ensuring that the store runs smoothly.
