About Canada Bereavement Registry
On average, a deceased person will continue to receive 100 items of direct mail during the first year following their death. With approximately 265,000 people dying annually in the Canada (based on current figures), this amounts to millions of pieces of unnecessary and unwanted direct mail every year.
By stopping these distressing reminders of loss, our registry helps to ease the grief of family and friends of the deceased. Our service also helps the environment by stopping the useless production, delivery and refuse caused by unwanted direct mail.
Canada Bereavement Registry is an official benefit to the members of the Funeral Service Association of Canada
