Someone I love died of cancer

When a loved one dies because of cancer, it can be a difficult event to overcome. If you’re looking for a place to talk about it, or need support to get through it, we’re here to help.

We understand that everyone deals with their grief differently. That’s why we’re here to help you in any way we can.

You can get one-on-one support from a volunteer who’s been through it, or you can connect with others facing a similar loss through our “Living with Loss” group.

If you prefer prefer a less structured environment, the “Mourning Café” and the weekly “Mourning Walk” in Mount Royal Park offer informal settings to share your experiences and feelings with others.
