Resources in Canada Pre-Death Page

As pan-death alternatives are a very new development in Canada, we have only listed those which we are aware of.   We hope to be able to eventually provide links to specific information for each of the provinces and territories.   If you are aware of an alternative death-care service being offered in your area, please let us know — contact us by email.   Information on the actual pan-death process (what/when/where/how) is covered under the Post-death Care/Home Funerals page.

One of CINDEA's mandates is to bridge the gap between pre-death and post-death services — services that are rarely directly connected.   We recognize that we are reinforcing that gap by offering pre-death and post-death resources on separate pages of this site.   However, it was necessary to avoid the Resources in Canada pages from becoming too long.   We hope that you will consider both the pre-death and post-death pages when looking for resources to plan your end-of-life affairs.   Alternative death-care providers are listed in the brighter blue text.

  Symbol for CINDEA-recognized death midwives.   Please contact us if you wish to go through the recognition process — see our CINDEA Recognition page.

also has a 'training options' PDF
including programs (or singular courses) in Canada (usually 'in person'), and online (but not necessarily Canadian) that are accessible for Canadians interested in the alternative death-care field.  CINDEA can provide the Canadian component (ex. Canadian laws/regulations) and support for Canadians taking any non-Canadian online training program.

When You Die (Canada) provides information about all things death-related — from green burial options to the latest in the science of the afterlife and death resources.   Their developing documentary, "In the Realm of Death and Dreaming," explores whether consciousness survives death, and why it matters when choosing end of life care.

Elsewhere There are few organizations that are fully devoted to modern evolving attitudes towards the process and support of dying/death.   Although not Canadian, we recommend the following:

Dying into Love — U.S. based — workshops and videos (some free) in evolving concepts of dying and death — related to Doorway into Light, recognizing death as a sacred and spiritual passage
