A couple visiting a natural burial ground

Our Goal

Let’s create natural burial grounds!

We used to have a natural way of caring for our dead, but in much of western society it vanished with the growth of the funeral industry. If you live lightly or simply love nature, cremation and conventional burial may not align with your values.

Natural Burial Association envisions an Ontario where everyone has the option of a gentle goodbye.  We help advocates promote green burial in their community and we build awareness of natural burial among the public. Many people haven’t heard of natural burial, or think it’s illegal, or assume that cremation is eco-friendly (which it’s not!). We focus on Ontario, while trying to help anyone in Canada.
