Prince Edward Island is the home of the International Children’s Memorial Place (“ICMP”).
The mission of the ICMP is to promote and foster the health and well-being of individuals and families who grieve for the physical and emotional loss of a child.
ICMP operates a beautiful 12 acre park dedicated to the memory of lost children. It features a walking trail with reflection points, a path of remembrance, paved with engraved bricks, a labyrinth, and a memorial forest. The stunning natural setting is a sanctuary for the mind and soul, and allows the visitor to take advantage of the healing power of nature.
The ICMP was founded in 1999 by my cousins, Bill and Myra MacLean, following the death of their son, Trevor MacLean. (Every summer during my childhood, I would spend a few weeks in PEI, my mother’s birthplace, hanging out and getting into mischief and muddy in the red soil with Trevor. It was the best of times.)
The organization is a non-profit organization, and depends on donations. See the Donations page for more information.
Have a great weekend.
