Help and hope for everyone

Everyone, at some point in their lives, is affected by grief. It has no endpoint. There is no linear path for grief. Individuals alike are affected in many different ways.

Over the past decade, NSHPCA has broadened its work to raise awareness and understanding of grief. Today, NSHCPA works through Healing Pathways to help fund community-based initiatives supporting people in grief and emotional wellness.

Nova Scotia Hospice Palliative Care Society (NSHPCA) is responsible for distributing $300,000 in funding to support eligible groups or organizations to develop and/or implement community-based initiatives that align with the objectives of the NS Community Grief and Emotional Wellness Model, and in particular, address community needs in Colchester, Cumberland and East Hants counties.

Grief touches everyone

We want you to know that you are not alone. We care about you and want to help you and your community.

Healing Pathways offers funding to community organizations to support programming, activities
and other resources with a clear focus on supporting those that are experiencing grief, loss and bereavement, and aim to restore emotional health and wellness.


You can also learn more about grief by visiting the NSHPCA website.

New grief navigation tools and resources are continuously being developed. In the meantime, here are some resources.
