Donate to Hospice Toronto
Adding life to days
In 1985 at the Church of Holy Trinity in Toronto, a small and passionate group of people came together to care for Margaret Fraser, a friend and member of their community, by supporting her wish to die at home.
These exemplary efforts were documented by June Callwood in her book Twelve Weeks in Spring. Margaret’s story is both the inspiration and seed of Hospice Toronto.
Three months after Margaret’s death, the members of her care team met to discuss their shared feeling that a door had been opened. They felt that their innovation had not ended with Margaret’s death, that the learning had only begun, and that there was something more for them to do with the experience.
In September 1988, the name Trinity Hospice Toronto was chosen and services were formally offered to the community: Toronto’s first not for profit, community and volunteer-based, in-home hospice palliative care program, which later became Hospice Toronto.
