COVID-19 Threads of Life Update with image of lab coatSeptember 16, 2022

Threads of Life values the health and safety of our families, volunteers, participants and staff and will be monitoring the guidelines of Health Canada as well as provincial and regional jurisdictions, while making decisions regarding events and programs. Many of our programs and services proceed as usual. Following is additional information about current status and contingency plans:

Steps for Life – 

Thank you for your overwhelming support of 2022 Steps for Life events across the country. From coast to coast we once again showed how powerfully #WeWalkTogether. See you again next spring for Steps for Life!

Family Forums –

In 2022, we plan to gather in person once again. Each event will be following all local public health guidelines and regulations of the hotel, which may include showing proof of vaccination.

Threads of Life reserves the right to make changes or cancellations as necessary. Session availability is dependent on registration numbers.

Speakers Bureau bookings and events

Requests for Threads of Life speakers at in-person events are being accepted and addressed case by case, based on the situation and restrictions in the jurisdiction where the event is being held. Threads of Life has requirements and protocols in place to safeguard the safety of our volunteers and client audiences. We also have a number of speaker volunteers trained and willing to share their stories via virtual platforms. 

Volunteer training

Threads of Life’s volunteer training for Volunteer Family Guides and new speakers is being planned for November 2022. Please let us know if you are interested.

If you have any questions about any of these measures, please contact Shirley Hickman, Threads of Life Executive Director, [email protected] or 888-567-9490.
