Community Deathcare Canada is an emerging non-profit group, representing the needs and interests of Canadians who seek to
re-engage with dying and deathcare in more meaningful, holistic, and environmentally sustainable ways. 
We imagine a culture where death is reclaimed as an honoured part of life, and believe in the healing and transformative
possibilities of a more intimate and participatory relationship with dying and deathcare.
