The Lower Mainland Grief Recovery Society (LMGRS) invites you to our Annual General Meeting (AGM). At this event, we will have a Guest Speaker from Dying with Dignity.

This event will be held Tuesday June 18th, 2024 by Zoom from 6 – 8pm

If you are interested in attending please email us at: lmgr@lmgr.ca

Our Guest Speaker, Labhrás Quigley from Dying with Dignity will guide us through various end-of-life options available, providing a brief overview of the current MAID (Medical Assistance in Dying) legislation, its process, and the proposed future changes.

Labhrás, a dedicated end-of-life guide, supports individuals and families as they navigate their final chapters. He volunteers with Dying with Dignity Canada  Metro Vancouver Chapter | Dying With Dignity Canada overseeing the Lower Mainland’s volunteer witness and proxy program. His experience extends beyond DWDC, with volunteer work at Vancouver Hospice and the Callanish Society.

Driven by his passion, Labhrás founded The ABE Project, a non-profit that encourages individuals to explore life through the lens of death, dying, and grief. Through workshops, education, and community events, The ABE Project aims to foster meaningful engagement with these often-uncomfortable topics.

Honour a Life
“Honour a Life is a night we come together as a community to honour our loved ones and remember those who have passed. Christmas can be a very difficult time for those who have suffered loss, and we hope that this event can offer both peace and fellowship through this difficult time.”  www.kearneyfs.com In Vancouver (at VanDusen) and New Westminster. Offered by Kearney’s Funeral Home

Bereavement Day – 3rd Sunday in May

“An opportunity for those caregivers who care for the dying and the bereaved to offer a service of remembrance or special gathering to honour and recognize bereavement as a part of life, not to be forgotten and ignored. It is a chance for grieving individuals to publicly, yet privately, acknowledge their grief with others who are grieving so that they do not feel alone or different.”  BC Bereavement Helpline (BCBH) http://www.bcbh.ca
