BC Hospice Palliative Care Association is a not-for-profit, membership organization, which has been representing individuals and organizations committed to promoting and delivering hospice/palliative care to British Columbians since 1986. Our Members provide a broad range of services to British Columbians who are dying and to their loved ones who are grieving; BCHPCA Members provide these services in all regions of the Province. Each year, BCHPCA hosts an educational event which focusses on topics of interest to healthcare professionals, hospice society staff and volunteers and members of allied organizations who are committed to quality end of life care.  
 I wished there were a place for gracious dying. A high place with a distant view. Where we could gather for a celebration of life and death and friendship, old and new. I’d like a place where there would be good music,  Good food and wine – and laughter, games and fun –  And quiet talk with friends and good discussion of what will happen when this life is done.
