Virtual Living with Loss Group

WINTER 2021 UPDATE: NEW SCHEDULE

We are continuing to offer Living with Loss virtually at this time using Zoom. At this point, it is unknown when we will return to in-person groups. Groups will meet virtually on the 1st Tuesday, 1st Wednesday and 3rd Tuesday of the month from 7-9pm.

If you need support with Zoom, please use our Getting Started with Zoom Meetings guide and visit their Frequently Asked Questions page.

If you do not have access to internet or video conferencing/a webcam, once you register, there will be phone numbers you can use to call in to the meeting.


Living With Loss Program

Living with Loss offers a safe space to connect with other people who are grieving, share your thoughts and feelings, and hear new perspectives and coping strategies.

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. This group is for adults 18+ and is still free of charge.
