Celebrancy as a profession developed in response to people’s need for meaningful ceremonies to mark the major milestones and transitions in their lives.

Originating in Australia, celebrancy is growing in Canada as our society has become increasingly secular and diverse.

There is now a growing awareness of the importance of taking time out of our busy lives to honour the important stages and rites of passage in our lives, and to strengthen the connections with our families, friends, colleagues and neighbours.


Celebrancy is about creating modern ceremonies that have the power to meet our deep needs to:


  • celebrate the joys of new births and beginnings,
  • honour and reflect on what has passed or been lost,
  • acknowledge the difficulties in life, and provide healing and hope for the future.
Celebrancy is about living mindfully in the midst of all the ups and downs of life.
