George Derby Centre


George Derby Centre is owned and operated by the George Derby Care Society and is fully accredited by the Canadian Council on Health Services Accreditation. The Society is a non-profit community-based organization, governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.

The original George Derby Centre was built over 50 years ago as a rehabilitation centre for young disabled veterans returning from the war with the goal of promoting their return to community living. In 1988, the new George Derby Centre opened as a 300-bed Intermediate Care facility providing residential care to former veterans of the Armed Forces deemed eligible for admission by Veterans Affairs Canada. The Centre’s operations are funded by the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia. This unique partnership is defined in the existing Federal/Provincial Transfer Agreement which stipulates the range of services provided to our veteran resident population. The Centre is named in honour of George Cleveland Derby.
