Release a Live Butterfly in memory of a loved one...

Each spring, Bereaved Families of Ottawa holds a special community memorial and fundraising event. The event is open to the public.  Pre-registration is required if you would like to purchase a butterfly to release in honour of your loved on


The event begins with a memorial ceremony in the Sacred Space inside the Beechwood National Memorial Center.  This part of the event features live music, with speakers on hand, and an opportunity for participants to speak the names of their loved ones who have died.

From the memorial ceremony, we move to the hill overlooking the garden and pond, to share a symbolic release of live painted lady butterflies.  These beautiful butterflies are a symbol of hope and transformation, and the simultaneous release of them is magical.

The event will end with a memorial walk, allowing participants an opportunity to reflect and share memories as they enjoy the unique grounds of the Beechwood National Cemetery.  At your own pace, complete a full or partial figure 8 walk through the peaceful grounds of Beechwood.  Light Refreshments will follow.

This is always a wonderful event memorializing our cherished loved ones.
