A compassionate Ottawa supports and empowers individuals at any age, their families and their communities to live well and die and grieve 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.

National Partners

Pallium Canada

Pallium is a national, non-profit organization focused on building professional and community capacity to help improve the quality and accessibility of palliative care in Canada.


CARP is Canada’s largest advocacy association for older Canadians. Formerly the Canadian Association for Retired Persons, today CARP has more than 300,000 members aged 50 plus. As a non-partisan association, CARP is committed to working with all parties in government to advocate for older Canadians.
