Virtual Death Cafe

two hands holding cups of coffee

At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to discuss death.  Our objective is to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.  A Death Cafe is a group-directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. 

During these uncertain times, having a safe and non-judgmental space is even more important as we grapple with what life looks like today and how it is affecting both our living and our dying.​

​Even in these uncertain times, one certainty remains...talking about death and dying.

Ottawa Public Library and Home Hospice Association are partnering to hold a Death Café online on Zoom. The registration button leads to an intake form managed by the Home Hospice Association.
