S.O.L.E. Sistas

Each program we host attracts a cross-section of FEMALE-ONLY attendees from the first responder world, including police, corrections, paramedics, firefighters, CBSA and communicators/dispatchers. Each program is open to active and retired personnel, as well as sworn and civilian members.

The focus of the weekend and six day programs will be on peer support within a peer support structure, under the guidance of a licensed professional, as well as member(s) with lived experience, modeling positive post-traumatic growth while involved with group activities practiced within a safe environment.

The Program currently held in Lion’s Head, ON at a subsidized cost for the participant(s).

Our Collaborations

Badge of Life Canada is extremely proud to network and collaborate with numerous therapists across Canada and beyond. 

We are extremely grateful for all of the therapists who donate their personal time to attend and assist with our Programs.

Vote for your favourite therapist and have them recognized during our November 2, 2018 Fundraising Gala, "The Blue Ball".

Chaplains Corner

Badge of Life Canada believes that there is no one specific or magic pill for first responders that can be prescribed for those facing an OSI condition from trauma exposure.

We believe that an individual must experience positive growth with the mind, body and spirit.

We collaborate with Chaplains who can assist with spiritual requirements outside of a specific religion or practice.

September 3-7, 2019 we are hosting a course for Chaplains with CISD training.

Are you ready to answer the call?

Crossing the threshold, asking for assistance and investing in yourself along your own Hero's Journey can lead to positive post-traumatic growth while moving from isolation into a community of Tribe-like mentors and allies who can demonstrate that there are #StrengthinNumbers

Expertise - Peer Support

The spectrum of Peer Support, as described by the Mental Health Commission of Canada in their “Guidelines for the Practice and Training of Peer Support” acknowledges for Peer Support workers in Canada that there is no cookie cutter system and that there can be a range from informal friendship groups to clinically supervised organizational models.

Our Senior Police Advisors, Syd Gravel and Brad McKay as instructors have training and experience in all areas within the spectrum for individual and organizational requirements.

Expertise Collaborations

Badge of Life Canada as a charitable organization strives to network & collaborate with others in the delivery of our Programs.
