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.

August 20th, 2014 | Welcome to our updated website!
We have made some significant changes to the website recently. Most importantly, the ‘support’ section now has multiple pages: support groups, support materials, recommended reading, and links. For professionals providing assistance to those bereaved by homicide, who would like to start their own support groups or learn more about supporting those affected by traumatic death, we now have a training page.
