A compassionate Ottawa supports and empowers individuals, their families and their communities throughout life for dying and grieving well.

Partners of Compassionate Ottawa

Compassionate Ottawa will itself not offer any palliative care services. Rather we will work in partnership with organizations that offer such services and link them with community organizations that have needs or who have interests in building their capacity to better serve their constituents.
