Victims of Homicide Western Conference
Touched By Murder: Moving Forward - Building Hope
On May 15 and 16 we gathered at the Delta Edmonton South to bring together victims’ families and individuals to explore the journey and circumstances of those who have been “touched by murder.” We welcomed numerous keynote speakers including Annette Bidniak, Donna Bradley, and Patrick Knight. Thank you to everyone who attended - we're already looking forward to next year! Please visit our photo gallery to see some pictures from the conference.

VOH Annual BBQ

National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims
September 25, 2017 marked the annual National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims, giving us all the opportunity to remember those lost to homicide and honour their memories. This day of remembrance serves to focus on the impact of murder on families and communities and the support for survivors.
At our September 2017 VOH meeting, we released balloons in honour of this day and all of our loved ones, sharing our memories with the sky.
