A Heritage of Friendship & Patronage
Operated under the distinguished patronage of Her Honour, The Honourable Janet Austin, OBC, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia.
Throughout its 140-year history, The Cridge Centre for the Family has had a proud association with the Lieutenant Governors of British Columbia. The Honourable James Douglas, a particular friend of our founders Bishop Edward and Mrs. Mary Cridge, established a connection that has extended through the decades.
Past events include orphans’ Christmas parties at Government House, The Honourable David Lam visiting our childcare centre and speaking at an annual general meeting, The Honourable Iona Campagnolo opening The Cridge Village assisted living for seniors, and The Honourable Stephen Point having lunch with our seniors and staff. The Honourable Judith Guichon regularly attended events and participated in Cridge life, as has Her Honour Janet Austen.
