An invitation to our Butterfly Remembrance Ceremony


Every year on the second Sunday in September, the Women and Babies Program at Sunnybrook holds a Remembrance Ceremony in our Butterfly Garden to honour all the babies who were not able to go home with their parents. Family members and staff members come together to grieve, to remember, to love and to celebrate. If you would like to be part of this, please feel free to join us this Sunday, September 13, at 1pm. The ceremony is outside, just west of the Veterans Wing and you will find it by following the trail of butterflies that begins at the edge of the road.

To learn more about our ceremony, please read about our 2014 ceremony and our first ceremony in 2013. If you have any questions, please email Kate at
