Talk 3: Peer Support Meeting September 19, 2023

Peer Support Meeting

Join our regular third Tuesday meeting for Funeral Professionals Peer Support. This meeting is open to anyone who serves their communities during some of their worst moments, providing care to the grieving. That includes everyone from the front office to the back room, chapel to gravesite, suited to coveralls — and everyone in-between. As a peer support meeting, all are invited to share personal experiences and connect with people who understand what you experience everyday.

Open to everyone across North America, no registration is required to attend, simply mark your calendar and save the Zoom link to access the meeting.

No CE is available because this is the time to connect. CANA is proud to host what is hopefully the first of many of these meetings, but staff will not be attending to give you the space to talk to your peers and share. You do not need to be a CANA Member to participate.

Apprentices, interns, and students: you are welcome!



Peer support is provided by peers, for peers. Founded on key principles such as respect and shared responsibility, it’s a group of individuals with similar experiences who encourage and assist each other. Everyone is expected to treat others with care and understanding. Everyone will be given space to share their story, but no one will be "called on" because respectful listening can also be beneficial.

Anonymity is respected: attendees are asked to share just their first name or initial when they log in.

Participants will keep the information shared in the group confidential and the event will not be recorded.

Cameras and microphones are not required to be on during the meeting.

  • This meeting is not a substitute for therapy
  • This event does not provide continuing education credit


Join the funeral professional peer support meeting for anyone who works for a funeral home, cemetery, or crematory serving the public or supporting those who do. Students, apprentices, and interns are welcome.
