Throughout its history, the Riverview Lands have adapted to economic, philosophical and social changes both locally and provincially. This theme addresses the ways in which the Lands have changed over time due to changing circumstances: building uses have adjusted to changes in treatment, cottages have changed from residences to administration offices, road networks have been modified and non-hospital uses have been introduced.
In addition to the physical adaptation of the Lands, this theme encompasses the adaptability of people to changes on the site, beginning with the First Nations and continuing through hospital staff and patients who adapted to changing treatments and large-scale events.
