The umbrella organization, the BC Bereavement Helpline, has provided support, education, resources, and advocacy for the bereaved, their caregivers, and professionals since its inception in 1986. Read more.


BC Victims of Homicide (BCVOH) is an initiative of the BC Bereavement Helpline (BCBH) and is dedicated to supporting individuals who are living with the loss of a loved one to homicide. Losing a loved one to homicide, whether it is a child, a spouse, a parent, a sibling, a close friend, a co-worker, or an acquaintance is an extremely difficult experience for anyone to endure. This program carefully considers these sensitivities and continues to fulfill existing gaps in services.
