Who we are

The Cold Lake Palliative Care Society is a non-profit organization that aims to ensure the provision of palliative care services in Cold Lake and surrounding area.

Our philosophy is that we believe individuals have the right to die with dignity in a care environment of their choice. We also believe that clients and their families need support, that our community has the responsibility to ensure that Palliative Care services are available.

Our Mission

“To ensure the provision of Palliative care services in our community.”

We want people to be aware of what Palliative care consists of and how it can improve a person’s life who is suffering a life threatening illness. Through our provided resources, events and fundraisers, we believe that we can spread awareness of palliative care and its benefits.
