About Celebrate A Life
Celebrate A Life offers a unique opportunity for you to honour a loved one during the holiday season — a difficult time of year for many dealing with grief. The annual event has become a tradition for many families in our community since 1985. Each year hundreds of tributes are hung on our Celebrate A Life Trees.
Victoria Hospice invites you to remember your loved ones by hanging a personalized tribute ornament.
Place your tribute on our Virtual Celebrate A Life tree online, or in person at one of our Celebrate A Life tree locations:

Funds are raised from a variety of sources, including private donations, foundation grants, corporate sponsorships and fundraising events such as Celebrate A Life.
