Hummingbird Centre for Hope

All of our support programming is delivered through peer support; support from other widowed parents who have experienced a similar loss and can understand your grief on a different level. The power of peer support is that it helps to normalize the grief experience, show individuals that they are not alone, and create a sense of normalcy by being surrounded by others who are experiencing the same multitude of reactions.

There is no cost to attend any of our programs.

Details of some of the programs are listed below. If you have any questions, please call 519-500-8535 or email Marny at
