At BFO Toronto, you will find respectful listening and a non-judgmental environment where you are given time and space to discover your own special way of understanding or living with the death of your loved one. We are a community who has the courage to share and bear witness to the pain of our tragedies and be a beacon of hope for the future.

We travel the road together. We can help the healing begin.

Our support programs are free and supported by our generous donors.
Your donation helps us provide grief support free-of-charge to the bereaved.
