Organization of CINDEA


CINDEA is an entirely volunteer-run organization, providing pan-death information and resources to Canadians.   We welcome your inquiries — please allow 72 hours for us to respond.   

We invite you to support CINDEA's on-going work — whether you are involved with the alternative or conventional side of pan-death care, or simply interested in the more natural and/or ecological options of the pan-death movement.    Please contact us if you are interested in receiving our periodic updates on exciting developments in Canada.

CINDEA is a registered nonprofit society.   However, because we do not have charitable status, we cannot issue an official tax receipt for your donation. 

General Membership in CINDEA

Changes to the Society Act now allow us to accept general members of CINDEA, and we welcome you to contact us about becoming a general member.   Membership is $20 per year.   We welcome those who are generally interested, as well as DWENA practitioners.
