Support & Share Night Program

Join us for an evening of grief education and bereavement support at our upcoming Support and Share Night on Tuesday July 2nd, 2019. The day after Canada day.

Our Jul 2, 2019 speaker is Ian Henderson. His topic is Common Questions Grievers Ask.

Ian’s topic is suitable for both the new and ‘experienced’ griever. Through the answers to these questions, Ian will give us a better understanding of the normal and natural process of bereavement.

Ian is a grief educator and facilitator who has helped 100’s through their grieving journey.


For 35 years, this monthly program has been supporting individuals and families on their journey of grief.  The night begins with an educational talk, followed by an opportunity to connect with others who are grieving a similar loss to yours in one of our 8 support groups.  Groups are led by trained facilitators who have grieved and experienced a loss similar to yours.  You are not alone.

The 8 bereavement groups are:

  • for Youth (High School age)    **NEW for 2019***
  • loss of Spouse
  • loss of Child
  • loss of Perinatal (miscarriage, still birth, infant under 1 year)
  • loss of Parent/Other
  • loss of Sibling/Friend/Other
  • by Suicide
  • by MAID (Medical Assistance in Dying)
