Pay parking changes

Starting March 4, 2022, pay parking is being reinstated at all B.C. health authority sites, including at VCH facilities, to ensure that parking spots are available for patients, staff, volunteers and visitors.

Parking reimbursements

To ensure parking fees do not create a barrier to access for patients and visitors, parking exemptions will be available to people who meet certain criteria, including:

  • Patients receiving dialysis treatment
  • Patients undergoing cancer treatment in acute-care
  • Parents or guardians of children staying in hospital overnight
  • Patients experiencing financial hardships

Eligible patients and visitors are asked to pay for parking upfront when at arriving at the hospital or facility, and will be reimbursed after their appointment, either in-person by visiting the cashier's office, or by going online.  

How to get your parking reimbursement while on site (in-person)

  1. Go to cashier's office at the hospital where your appointment is
  2. Ask the cashier for a Parking Reimbursement Form – Cashier
  3. Complete the form in full and return it to the cashier, along with your parking receipt
  4. The cashier will reimburse you immediately
Note: if you have more than one parking receipt to submit, you will need to complete a separate form for each receipt. 

How to submit your parking reimbursement online

  1. Download and complete the Parking Reimbursement Form – Online in full. 
  2. Email the completed form, along with a copy of the parking receipt, to commuting@vch.ca. Eligible patients and visitors can expect to receive a reimbursement check in about six to eight weeks.

Note: if you have more than one parking receipt to submit, you will need to complete a separate form for each receipt. 

For more information, email commuting@vch.ca or call 604-785-3409 (please leave a voice message, if prompted).
