Want to become a Rural Ambassador?

The Together Through Loss: Rural Ambassador Program is ideal for individuals in rural communities who have a desire to make a difference in the lives of those navigating infertility, miscarriage, stillbirth, Termination for Medical Reasons (TFMR), and neonatal loss. Our Together Through Loss Ambassadors play an important role in offering peer connection to those experiencing loss in rural areas. In this volunteer role, you will be helping to implement, coordinate and lead a monthly informal social connections group in your local community.


Our Rural Ambassador groups differ from our support groups in that they are informal peer gatherings focused on bringing the community together through their individual experiences of loss. The foundation of these groups is connection and a sense of belonging. Rural Ambassador groups are unique and offer a space to build relationships within your local area.

In order for our Ambassadors to plan effectively we do ask that you register to attend a group in your local area. You can register up to 24 hours before your group starts and attend as many groups as you would like. You will receive a confirmation email upon booking and a welcome email with location details.

As with all of our services at PILSC, we believe in the importance of removing barriers to accessing services. Thanks to funding, all of our groups are offered at no cost to participants. For those who have the means and ability to donate toward the centre and our groups programming, we graciously accept donations:

Yes, at PILSC we believe grief is a life-long journey and our community addresses the life-long impacts of loss and at every stage of the parenting journey (initial grief, trying to conceive, pregnant again and parenting after loss).

Rural Ambassador groups are in-person and held at various locations. To find out if there is a group near you, please visit for more information. If we currently do not offer a group yet in your local community, we offer a variety of online support groups. All of our online groups are open for anyone to attend anywhere in the world. Please visit for more information.

We are always taking new applications and encourage you to check out our Rural Group Ambassador Program. Please visit for more information.
