IWS owns and operates the Riverview lands in Coquitlam on behalf of the government of BC. For almost 100 years the Riverview lands have been a place of healing, caring and tranquility for many of BC's residents who suffer from mental illness. While its role as a home to Riverview Hospital is over, the lands history as a place of care and healing will continue.
As the steward of these lands, the Province of BC is committed to balancing the needs of those citizens continuing to receive mental health care services at the site with environmental leadership, community aspirations and the needs of BC's citizens, as the future of the lands is considered.
Working with stakeholders, IWS continues to care for the lands and demonstrates its commitment to responsible stewardship practices through a number of initiatives.
