Through this action plan, the Government of Quebec wishes to make life easier for people affected by the death of a loved one by offering them personalized services and simplifying the administrative procedures they have to complete.

The Action Plan includes nine measures grouped under three general axes, namely

  • better inform and guide the population with regard to the steps to be taken in the event of a death;
  • reduce the volume of steps required in the event of a death and the delays;
  • facilitate the process through legislative changes.
