Virtual Living with Loss Group

FALL 2021 UPDATE

Living with Loss continues to meet virtually via Zoom from 7-9pm on the 1st Tuesday, 1st Wednesday and 3rd Tuesday of the month.


Living With Loss Program

Living with Loss offers a safe space for adults 18+ to connect with other people who are grieving a death.

You are welcome to join the group at any point in your grief journey and attend as often or as little as you feel you need the support.

As per our usual Living with Loss groups, our virtual sessions will be facilitated by two peer support volunteers. PLEASE REMEMBER: We are not therapists, counsellors or mental health professionals. We are providing a safe space to connect with other people who are grieving.
