Current Learning Opportunities

Our monthly education program, Dying To Know, is open to anyone interested in various topics related to death and dying. These interactive sessions help in preparing for end-of-life, offer strategies for staying resilient through challenging times, and help care partners become more confident in their roles.

The Parent Lunch and Learn Series, led by the Children’s Grief Centre, provides parents and caregivers with brief, concrete, direct and accessible information as they navigate new situations with their grief and their children’s grief.
