Make a Contribution

The LifeLine Canada Foundation’s mission is to open minds, save lives and restore hope. Whether it be through the information provided on this website, through the LifeLine App, or through any of our initiatives like Companion Paws Canada, we are constantly looking for ways to reduce the suicide rate and minimize the consequences of suicidal behavior. More…

Suicide is a serious public health problem that have lasting, harmful effects on individuals, families, and communities. It’s an issue that is still surrounded by fear, shame, and silence. By breaking through the barrier of stigma and openly addressing the factors that contribute to suicide, we can all take a more active and effective role in helping to prevent it and support those who are bereaved.

Our secret weapon is ourselves, our families and our friends. Using The LifeLine App as a first go-to tool, with instant guidance and support to help prevent suicides, build awareness, support survivors of suicide and work to eliminate the stigma surrounding suicide.

The effects on family and friends left picking up the shattered pieces after a suicide are so devastating and destructive. It can get so much worse before it gets better. It is a very long windy road of healing. The grief changes shape, but it never really ends.

Guidance, Love and Support are KEY.
