What To Do When Someone Dies?


We Accompany You In These Difficult Moments

We are here for you 24/7.

Contact us at 514 735-1361.

Your counsellor will guide you through the process and ensure that your needs are heard and met.

The First Steps

If the death occurs at home or suddenly

Call 911.

Your local ambulance service will come to your home to pronounce the death and prepare the death certificate. The deceased person’s physician may also come to prepare and sign this document. If you know that the passing is imminent, take the time to discuss the procedure with the doctor.

Once the death certificate is signed, contact us at 514 735-1361 (toll free: 1 888 735-1361). A counsellor will guide you through the steps to follow.

If the death occurs in a hospital or any other place

If the death occurs in a place other than at home, such as a hospital, a long-term care centre or a hospice, contact us as soon as possible at 514 735-1361 (toll-free: 1 888 735-1361).
