A compassionate Ottawa supports and empowers individuals, their families and their communities throughout life to live well and to die and grieve well.

Fall Update

As we all continue to deal with these uncertain times, we will be delivering our programs virtually throughout the fall. Workshops on grief and bereavement, conversations, and advance care planning, whether they are for your faith community, your workplace or your family and friends, will be available by Zoom. A new initiative highlighting conversations with leaders will be announced soon. And our website will take on a new look. Keep checking our events page and social media for updates or contact us if you’d like to host a workshop.

In the meantime, read the recently published articles prepared by Compassionate Ottawa volunteers, which can be found on our News page.

And remember, helping each other is like offering a precious gift. Don’t forget to give the gift of care and love, as often as you can
