Has a member of your family died?
You are not alone. Bereaved Families of Ontario provides
compassionate non-denominational mutual aid support for
families and individuals who have lost a significant person
to death. Through our affiliates, we offer support after
the loss of an infant, a child, an adult child, a parent,
a brother or a sister, an adult sibling, a grandchild
or a spouse.
Our affiliates also support parents,
guardians or family members helping a child grieve.
As well, they support the unique circumstances faced
by survivors of violent death, survivors of completed
suicide, and families seeking pregnancy after loss.
To find your nearest affiliate location, please go to
the affiliates page.
