Declaration of Death

A death is declared by completing the form Declaration of Death. It is completed by the declarant of the death and the funeral director.

The funeral director keeps his or her copy, gives one copy to the declarant of the death and sends the original to the Directeur de l’état civil, where applicable.

The information collected using this form and the Attestation of Death will be used to record the death in the Québec register of civil status.

Health Insurance Card

The relatives may give the deceased’s health insurance card to the funeral services business, who will see that it is returned to the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec. Otherwise, it must be returned directly to the Régie de l'assurance maladie du Québec.
