The new Red Fish Healing Centre for Mental Health and Addiction is the first of its kind in British Columbia – enabling clients to receive integrated, concurrent treatment for both mental health and addiction.

Opened in October 2021, the 105-bed centre focuses on clients’ mental wellness and substance-free living, as well as their physical wellness and eventual transition to care in their home communities.

Located on səmiq̓ʷəʔelə in Coquitlam, the centre incorporates contributions from the Kwikwetlem First Nation, including Indigenous murals and art, a room for healing activities and an exterior “House Post” — the first to be raised in the Nation’s traditional lands in more than 100 years. The community also suggested the centre’s name; θəqiʔ ɫəwʔənəq leləm or Red Fish Healing Centre in English.

Our team in British Columbia was proud to support this innovative healthcare project, working as the chief project officer and providing both project management and operational readiness support in partnership with Capex Projects.
