Annual Events

Hike for Hospice every May PCSBV hosts Hike for Hospice during National Hospice Palliative Care Week. Through this event and week PCSBV promotes and fundraises for hospice, end of life, and palliative care in the Bow Valley. The hike is a flat five-kilometer loop in Canmore that follows the Bow River. Annually the first full week of May marks National Hospice Palliative Care Week in Canada. This week is a time to celebrate and share achievements of hospice palliative care throughout the nation.

SPECIAL SPEAKER SERIES – Dr. Samantha Winemaker

November 9, 2022 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

From Dr. Winemaker:

“I spent the first part of my career imagining how I could improve the illness journey for patients and families. I imagined a world where patients and families didn’t have to ask for palliative care to achieve a ‘good death’. I imagined a world where patients and families felt they had a roadmap for what to expect along their illness journey. I imagined a tidal wave of patients and families demanding a different type of care. I’d like you to imagine the same. “
