Are you grieving? Do you know someone who is?

Every Canadian deserves the chance to say goodbye to their loved ones, even in an unprecedented crisis such as COVID-19. There have been too many heartbreaking stories of families who are unable to say goodbye due to extreme restrictions on end-of-life visitations. As a result of these restrictions during the pandemic, many people have lost a loved one have not been able to say goodbye, visit, and in many cases have a proper funeral or celebration of life.

We at CHPCA would like to acknowledge the grief so many Canadians  have experienced during these unprecedented tines by holding an online concert in conjunction with National Bereavement Day.

Join us on November 15th 7 pm ET for a breathtaking musical journey that honours Canadians experiencing grief during the pandemic.
