Iqaluit Bereavement Groups – 2016

We know that dealing with grief and loss can be difficult, which is why IIKELC was proud to host monthly bereavement groups from August – November 2016. These groups were led by local facilitators at the Elders Qamaq in Iqaluit and aimed to bring hope and healing to those affected by grief and loss by providing a safe space to discuss this topic with others in similar situations.
