About us

Founded in 2005, The Natural Burial Association is a Canadian non-profit organization. Our mission is to provide green burials or “natural burial”, an environmentally-friendly alternative to conventional burials in Canada. Our members include individuals, corporations, and non-profits dedicated to providing natural burials in Canada. We work with all faith communities, and those without any religious affiliation in this final rite of passage.

Our two goals

      1. We raise awareness about the environmental benefits of natural burial. It’s not common knowledge, but we’re changing that.
      2. We facilitate setting up natural burial grounds. Many burial operators aren’t sure where to start, and we’re honoured to help.

We support the highest environmental standards for burial grounds. The US based Green Burial Council demonstrates the sort of rules required to open and operate a Natural Cemetery. We work with those who provide the highest, greenest standards.
