About this Death Cafe

Join us at the Toronto Public Library at Yonge and Bloor for snacks, coffee, tea, and open conversations about death and dying.

Prepare for an interactive evening! We will be sitting in small groups, which will change midway through the evening. This ensures everyone gets to participate in different conversations, gaining more perspective and making the most of this open discussion about death and dying.

There is no pre-set agenda; each small group will determine the topics.

This free event is open to persons of all ages, from vibrant 20-somethings to lovely seniors.

No RSVP is required, and we have lots and lots of space :-)

About Nadine Lavoie & Amanda Burgess

Nadine Lavoie

Special Flight Attendant to people at End of Life

For over 15 years, I've had the honour of volunteering, offering solace to those at the end of their lives. I am passionate about bringing a gentle, loving presence, comfort, and kind experience to individuals in their final moments. I believe everyone deserves to feel joy, serenity, and love and to see one more smile before their last breath.

I am a strategist and coach with over 23 years of experience in communications. I use my lifetime of storytelling skills to help women navigate the seas of change—divorce, loss, career, aging, menopause, and more—overcome the grief in it and become the main characters in the next chapter of their lives.
