BC Bereavement Day
The Order of Council of the Province of British Columbia has proclaimed the 4th Sunday of every May as Bereavement Day in BC. We acknowledge and support those in grief and recognize that with public awareness, compassion and education, a person's ability to adjust to their loss is improved. We hope to one day ensure that "Bereavement Support is an Essential Service." We invite you to join us in commemorating this day for yourself or someone you know who is grieving.
Bereavement Day Event was Sunday, May 26, 2019
Location: Mountain View Cemetery located west of Fraser St, between 31st Ave and 43rd Ave in Vancouver
