Watch our new promotional video to learn more about our services and programs.

Evergreen provides community based supportive services to individuals and their families in Markham, Stouffville and Thornhill, who are living with a life-threatening illness or living with the death of a loved one.

Evergreen is a non-profit, charitable organization which depends on donations and limited government funding in order to provide support at no charge to the client.

In April 2014, Evergreen Hospice of Markham Stouffville and Hospice Thornhill, organizations that have both served their communities for more than 25 years, joined to become one stronger agency serving all three communities: Markham, Stouffville and Thornhill. Operational integration was complete at the end of 2013 with the governance and legal changes approved as of March 31, 2014. The new organization is now called “Evergreen”.

Working together, 

  • Evergreen now can use the combined potential of the two staff groups, two Boards of Directors and two very committed volunteer groups to address the ever expanding demands for service
  • Evergreen is better able to address the fundraising needs
  • Evergreen will be better able to represent the needs of clients at the government level

Thank you to the Ontario Trillium Foundation

We are very pleased to share that we are now offering our Bereavement Mailing Program in two additional languages – Traditional Chinese and Tamil.
This has been made possible thanks to the Ontario Trillium Foundation, through their Ontario Trillium Grant. In addition, they are providing funding for an extra counsellor to help us with the increased demand for our services.
We are so grateful for this generous grant, helping us be there for more people in our community who need us. Thank you Ontario Trillium Foundation!
