1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday 

Closed holidays 


The Sunshine Gift Shop is located at the entrance to Tower B (Deacon Street entrance).


The Sunshine Gift Shop has a reputation for providing unique merchandise - much of it is Canadian sourced. You can find clothing, sleepwear, babywear, footwear, giftware, jewellery, watches, purses, accessories, flowers, snacks and sundry items at the gift shop. 


Television Rentals 

If planning to rent a television for a patient, the gift shop is the place to complete the required paperwork. Cost of a television rental is $10/day (including tax); $60/week or $150 for a month's rental. Payment can be made by cash, debit, credit card or with a PRH gift card. This service can also be activated by calling the gift shop at (613) 732-2811 extension 6180. A credit card is the required method of payment for phone activations.


If a rental occurs after 2:30 p.m., there is no guarantee that the television will be activated that day. No refunds are available unless approved by the gift shop manager. 


Once payment has been made, the paperwork is dropped off at the nursing station. The patient is provided with headphones and a TV guide. 


From March 2019 until August 2019, at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Auxiliary provided patients with free television services as visitors were restricted. 


Fashion Shows  

For 53 years, the Auxiliary hosted an annual fall tea at the Marguerite Centre, but as with all events, the need to modernize and revitalize provided us with the opportunity in 2014 to make significant changes resulting in the scheduling of two fashion shows per year. These were put on pause during the pandemic. The first post-COVID event will take place in the spring of 2023.
