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

Compassionate Ottawa

Living as long as you can as well as you can.

Special Announcement

Our community is living through an extraordinary and unsettling time.  Our Public Health officials have asked us to stay at home as much as we can and to cancel events.  So, with great regret, Compassionate Ottawa will not be offering workshops, holding in-person meetings, or keeping our office open until further notice.  Our staff will be working from home, following emails, and responding to phone messages. While we are stepping back from business as usual, we are not stepping back from caring for each other. Please remember to reach out to your family, your friends and neighbours as well as those whose work is essential to our well being with words and acts of kindness and support.

We are pleased to announce that we have received a grant from the Canadian Frailty Network to create three new community education resources to raise awareness of end of life issues and prompt citizens to be better prepared for giving and receiving help in later life.
