Who we are

The Powell River Hospice Society

We are a registered charity that provides end-of-life and bereavement support to those in the qathet Regional District, including Tla’Amin First Nation and Texada Island.

Our Vision

Our vision is of a sustainable organization providing active support and education for end-of-life and bereavement to all residents in Powell River and the Regional District.

Our Mission

The Powell River Hospice Society, a community-based, non-profit organization, offers social, emotional and spiritual support to individuals at the end of their life—through compassion, respect and care, aimed at quality of living and a good death. We also support family and friends in grief and bereavement, and are committed to providing education and advocacy throughout the community.

Our Values

We consider death a natural and meaningful part of life’s journey. The values that guide us include respect, compassion, empathy, equity, caring, healing, open communication, collaboration, accountability, creativity and honouring in all that we do.


Volunteer visitors for every need, bereavement groups, therapy dogs, life review, art and music therapy, workshops, community resources and, some day, a hospice building. Your donation is a commitment to making such dreams a reality—hospice and bereavement care in our community.
