What to Do in the Event of Death

Notification of Deaths to Certain Government of Canada’s Agencies and Departments

When someone dies, the funeral director invites the person declaring the death to complete the form Application for the simplified forwarding of information relative to the death. Following reception of the form, the Directeur de l’état civil notifies certain Government of Canada Departments.
