Bereavement services

We offer grief and bereavement support by counsellors and trained volunteers for families and individuals, including children and teens.

Community education

We provide courses, publications and clinical tools to help health care professionals facilitate better outcomes for patients and families.

Quality end-of-life care for all

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for those facing life-limiting illness, death and bereavement through patient and family-centred care, education, research and advocacy.
