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.
