Natural Burial Ottawa

Natural (or green) burial is a form of burial that celebrates simplicity, stewardship, and reciprocity. It is a more sustainable approach to disposition than many of our contemporary choices.

Natural burial honours the circle of life and death as our bodies become one with the earth. This serves as a reminder that the ending of one can feed a sustainable future for others. It offers a meaningful choice, protects land, promotes biodiversity, and invites us into a deeper relationship with the natural world.

We are a group of passionate advocates hard at work to bring natural burial to the Ottawa region. If you’d like to join our efforts, please get in touch!

Also watch for upcoming events, including cemetery field trips and a presentation of historic burial sites in Canada.
