Compassionate Ottawa

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

What is New?

Call for volunteers with teaching background: Compassionate Ottawa is partnering with the two French school boards in Ottawa to work on a project that will serve to build shared language for school communities on topics of death, dying, loss and grief. Please note that the ability to work in English and French would be essential. Thank you for your interest in Compassionate Ottawa.
