The Palliative Care Society of the Bow Valley (PCSBV) is a community-focused and volunteer-led registered Canadian charity that helps improve the experience for individuals and their families who call the Bow Valley home that are journeying with life-limiting illness.


PCSBV is here to help those in need plan for terminal illness and to work through a life-limiting illness diagnosis. Be it to navigate loss and grief or to understand the complexities of palliative care in the health care system, support is available through PCSBV.


A goal of the PCSBV is to build a rural residential hospice in the Bow Valley.




Elephant in the Room


For 2023, we at the Palliative Care Society of the Bow Valley want to invite you into a conversation about the one thing we all truly have in common and how we might live our best lives when we are faced with the inevitable. We want to talk openly and freely, learning from cultures and beliefs where this is common practice. To talk about the 'big thing' in the room that lives larger for some than others is an important conversation. Join PCSBV in the discussion.


We will enable individuals and their families in the Bow Valley to receive palliative care close to home, by coordinating and developing alongside other community partners a full spectrum of palliative and end-of-life care and programs.


Every person in the Bow Valley has easy access to compassionate, high-quality programs and care throughout the palliative journey close to home.
