We at Hospice Halifax are working to transition our bereavement support group ONLINE. 

Our virtual sessions will continue to be facilitated by two bereavement volunteers.

PLEASE REMEMBER: The bereavement group is intended to provide peer-based support with facilitators’ guidance, rather than counselling. This group is for adults 18+ and is still free of charge. Open to Nova Scotia residents only.

Before registering, please review our virtual group guidelines.
