20 Years of Walking Groups
This year the Burnaby Hospice Society is celebrating 20 years of their bereavement walking groups. Countless number of people have had the opportunity to walk, talk and share their stories of grief with each other, finding a way forward to life without a loved one.

To join or for more information, please contact our bereavement coordinator at 604-419-6903.
Our Office is open by appointment.
Monday-Friday 9am-4pm


We are here to help.

Established in 1986, Burnaby Hospice Society is a volunteer-based organization dedicated to providing compassionate care to individuals and families during the end-of-life journey and to educating the community about dying and bereavement.
