Concert by the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association to Honour Canadians during COVID-19 Concert by the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association to Honour Canadians during COVID-19

CHPCA logo In celebration of the National Bereavement day 2020, we at CHPCA would like to acknowledge the grief so many Canadians have experienced during these unprecedented times by holding an online concert to honour Canadians loved ones and family members who have passed during COVID-19.

Canadians can add their loved one’s name to be streamed live during the concert by filling out the submission form below. The deadline for name submissions is August 17, 2020

Every Canadian deserves the chance to say goodbye to their loved ones, even in an unprecedented crisis such as COVID-19. There have been too many heartbreaking stories of families who were unable to say goodbye due to extreme restrictions on end-of-life visitations. As a result of these restrictions during the pandemic, many people who have lost a loved one have not been able to say goodbye, visit, and in many cases have a proper funeral or celebration of life. 

We would like to invite you to help us promote this initiative and raise awareness about bereavement and grief. Grief and bereavement support is an essential element of all care at the ends of one's life. Caregivers, families, and friends need more help to prepare to say goodbye and to live well while grieving the loss of their loved ones. 

The concert will air on November 15, 2020 as part of our National Bereavement Day campaign, representations from every province and territory, featuring the following artists: 

John McDermott

Tara Shannon

Alan Doyle

George Canyon

Larry Gowan

Rose McKenzie

Florent Vollant (Indigenous & French)

Kalen Wedge

Valdy

Eileen Laverty

Ray Legere
