Sudden Death and Grieving

The Death of someone close to us is one of life's most stressful events. Each individuals response to grief is different and the time that it takes for a person to move through the grieving process is unique to that individual. 

SRVSS has trained advocates who will provide you with support and information to assist you during this difficult time. Advocates may be requested by the RCMP to attend your residence, hospital or another location. If you have not been contacted by Victim Services and you wish to speak with someone, please contact SRVSS at 403-934-6552.
