Counselling & Info
It is natural to experience a great deal of stress, fear, anger and helplessness when you or a family member are faced with a diagnosis of cancer and its treatment. Professionally trained counsellors and social workers who specialize in cancer care are available to support you through the course of your illness and can provide individual, couple and family counselling support. They also offer a number of group programs. Please refer to the Monthly Calendar tab above to view the monthly group calendar.
In addition, there are often many practical and financial concerns to attend to. Patient and Family Counselling staff can provide assistance and information about transportation, accommodation, financial resources, community services and other practical resources. They can be contacted at 250.712.3963.
