The Canadian Alliance for Grieving Children & Youth (CAGCY) along with three lead organizations (Lighthouse for Grieving Children and Families, Lumara Grief & Bereavement Care Society, and Seasons Centre for Grieving Children) are pleased to introduce you to the Canadian Children’s Grief Symposium – Canada’s second virtual conference designed specifically for those who support grieving children and youth.
We are proud to announce that our very own Dr. Heather Mohan received the highest distinction from Douglas College yesterday where she was recognized as an Honorary Fellow.
This is a riveting and heartwarming story in the making; of courage, determination and raw talent, fused with keeping a valuable heritage alive and paying it forward into the future.
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) of Lumara Grief and Bereavement Care Society (the “Society”) will take place on Saturday, June 11, 2022 at 11 am PST…
After two years of virtual runs, the day has finally come where we can once again unite as a team and run or walk together in person at this year’s 2022 Vancouver Half Marathon & Charity Challenge…
This course will focus on writing a bereavement memoir which can help to keep our loved ones with us in meaningful and life-affirming ways. The people we love always remain part of us, even after their death, and their ongoing presence can bring us lasting joy.
If you are between the ages of 13-18, and would like an opportunity to connect with peers who understand then join us for the Vancouver Island Surfing & Camping Adventure in Tofino, BC!
We are calling for the nomination of candidates to stand for the Society’s Board of Directors. Member engagement is critical to the success of the Society and the Board relies upon your recommendations for strong candidates.
Expressive Arts Therapies are a critical part of Lumara’s unique model of care. These interactive, arts-based therapies for children and adults provide helpful emotional outlets, positive coping strategies, and enhanced communication.
In Canada there is little to no government funding designated for bereavement care, yet it is well documented that unresolved grief can lead to an array of mental health concerns including; anxiety, depression, addiction, and more.
For every loss, it is estimated that at least five people will be significantly impacted, yet very few have access to adequate long-term supports.
Every donation that you give to the Lumara helps us to provide support to children, youth, adults, and families impacted by loss and to those living with a serious illness. As a result of people like you, lives are being transformed across Canada.
By becoming a sustaining partner through Giving Monthly donations you can help us provide hope and support life after loss.
