Support for Families

Traditional Healing Supports

Finding meaningful support can be challenging, especially when you are grieving. PAIL Network has compiled a listing of resources in communities across Ontario that may offer crisis support as well as other meaningful connections with other services for Indigenous families at no cost. This list can be downloaded and printed, or you can access the links directly to the resources within the document. This list will be reviewed annually, and any additions or corrections can be sent to pailvolunteer@sunnybrook.ca

Please note that PAIL Network has provided these resources for information only and cannot endorse or recommend specific organizations.

Peer Support

Indigenous families across Ontario have unique grief needs that can be difficult for non-Indigenous persons to understand. In response to this unmet need, PAIL Network is proud to offer this much needed support hosted by an Indigenous peer support volunteer.

Please visit https://sunnybrook.ca/extras/pailnetwork/support-request-form/ to complete a request for support.

If you feel you are ready to be a peer supporter to other Indigenous families please consider volunteering for PAIL Network by filling out our volunteer application.

If you have any questions please contact pailvolunteer@sunnybrook.ca

iPad Pilot Program

We have learned that some families may not have the hardware needed to join our online support groups. In response to this, we have collected, repurposed and are distributing PAIL Network iPads to professionals across Ontario who support Indigenous families.
