Dear Prospective Vendor:

Thank you for your interest in the Vendor Program. The goal of this program is to generate funds for the purchase of much needed equipment for our hospital through the sale of items provided by local artisans and small to medium business entrepreneurs.  To ensure this program is mutually beneficial, all products must be new and of superior handmade or commercial quality.  The Afternoon Auxiliary will review the suitability of all items offered for sale.

Through this program we are able to provide a unique selection of items for purchase by patients, staff and visitors to the hospital which enables the Afternoon Auxiliary to “raise money to enhance the quality of healthcare in the community of Kamloops.”

Attached is information on this program along with a Vendor Application Form and Waiver. Trudy Deluca is the contact person for any vendor bookings or questions you may have on this program.  She can be reached by phone at 250-314-2331 or email at  Please provide your current phone number and complete mailing and email addresses.  Once the completed Waiver and eligible criteria of products and/or services are met, you will be added to our vendor directory and contacted as appropriate space becomes available in our program.

Thank you.

  • A waiver by AA of any term of this Agreement or of any breach by the vendor is effective only if it is in writing and signed by AA and is not a waiver of any other term or any other breach, even if it is of the same nature.

I will consider as confidential all information in verbal, written, or computerized form concerning a patient, resident,                                             client, family member, doctor, or any member of IHA personnel and will not seek information in regard to a patient/resident/client, nor will I disclose any such information which may come to my attention as a result of my role as a vendor. I understand failure to maintain confidentiality may result in the contract being revoked.
