The need for a network was ﬁrst discussed in 1989 at a bereavement conference in Hamilton.
The ideas, enthusiasm and energy generated during that conference led to a meeting a year later at which a blueprint for the Bereavement Ontario Network was developed.
The Network itself does no grief counselling or provide any direct service. Instead, it ﬁlls a distinct void by providing linkages between the various groups, counsellors, and bereavement resources already in place.
Today, the Bereavement Ontario Network provides an opportunity to access, in a reciprocal manner, the knowledge, experience, wisdom and sensitivity of other members throughout the province. You can use BON to access this support for your clients, and yourself, from across the province.
