Just wondering if the comic book Batman: death of the family by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo is still canon?

Yes.

Is there a reason why it wouldn't be?

This is spoiler stuff so read at own risk

At the end of Death of the Family Bruce lost the trust of the entire batfamily, nobody wanted to talk or work with him again. In Robin rises he goes on what basically is a suicide mission to save his son, and in the process the family decides to trust him again. Both are great stories. After Batman Death of The Family you can read the line of Batman & Robin Requin until Robin Rises. It was a great arc

Of course. The New 52 stories were prioritized when it came to continuity and canonicity over the Pre-New 52 stuff.

I don't think Robin Rises really undid the effects, I just think that it was a quick character arc that needed to happen to bring Batman back from the brink. On paper it's great, but as the issues came out I can see how it would seem quick and seeming to undo what has been done. Honestly I like this type of Batman. What I really connect with in a Batman is one who has created his own family, not one that pushes all of them away with major trust issues, which is one of the reasons why I have a love/hate relationship with that storyline.

Just because the other members of the Bat-family questioned whether they could truly trust Bruce after the Death of the Family arc doesn't mean they would never-ever trust him again. They have had too much previous history with him to just abandon all faith in Bats. It probably just means they should be a little more cautious in the future when it comes to blindly trusting Batman.
