Share The Light is an annual event at RMHCNA that pays tribute to the little House Hero ‘lights’ that we have lost in our journey. Our mission of serving families does not end when a family loses their child; this event gives families the opportunity to reconnect to the House and to each other.

Our Share The light families are warmly welcomed to attend the tribute.

If your family is unable to attend, we would like to give you the opportunity to have us honour your child on your behalf in your preferred manner.

This invitation is only for families connected to the House who have suffered the loss of a child. If you should be receiving an invitation to Share The Light, or know of a family who should receive an invitation, please contact Kristi Hammond on the RMHCNA team.

Families can arrive on the day of event either directly through the gate on the North patio of the House, or through our front doors, whichever is more comfortable. Finger food and beverages will be served. Each family will have the opportunity to write messages for their child which they can then keep or release with their family’s balloon at the finale of the event.

The Ceremony ends with a moment of silence followed by a group release of biodegradable dove balloons across the street in the schoolyard. Families are welcomed and encouraged to rejoin us for fellowship on the north patio after the balloon release, and also to stay for dinner that evening with the families at the House.

Accommodation: There is a block of rooms held at the Days Inn at our House rate of $79.99  for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights, July 24th through 26th inclusively. Please contact Kristi Hammond at or 780-439-5437 ext 244 by July 20th to reserve.

Our 3rd annual Block Party is taking place on July 26th, the day following Share The Light. We warmly welcome you to stay and participate in a day of fun, family and community.
