Vision, Mission and Values


Roger Neilson House enriches the lives of children, youth and their families facing progressive life limiting illnesses. Roger Neilson House was built in memory of Roger Neilson — Hockey Hall of Fame Coach and Member of the Order of Canada.

Our team provides respite, end of life, transition to home support, symptom management, perinatal care and bereavement care by ensuring individualized physical, emotional, and spiritual support in a caring, compassionate and continuous learning environment.

Our reward is the peace and comfort of every child, the creation of memories for their families and honouring the legacy of Roger Neilson.


Roger Neilson House will be recognized for providing excellence, innovation, research and leadership in pediatric palliative care through a full spectrum of family centered services in a supportive home-like environment. Our dynamic, integrated team will collaborate with, and be accountable to, our families and community partners.
