What We Do

No matter when, how, or who you lost, we provide an environment and resources to help you in your grief journey. Our programs and services range from one-to-one support sessions to 8-week support groups and are based on the peer-to-peer support model in which individuals with similar experiences share their stories, provide support, and inspire hope.

We are a community who has the courage to share and explore grief, and to be a beacon of hope for the future.

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

It took a long time for me to be ready for help, but when I was, BFO-Toronto was there for me. The people and stories helped me find a healthy perspective and taught me how to cope with my new life.

The BFO Spousal Loss Group provides a gay positive space where I can process, share and learn from the experiences of my “grief buddies”.

There were laughs, tears, new perspectives. The peer-to-peer support method really helped. I’ve even made some friends in grief.
