What You Need to Know About Cremation

More and more Canadians are choosing cremation over traditional burial for a variety of reasons.

Simplicity

An elaborate burial isn’t everyone’s preference. For some, a simpler approach like cremation offers a meaningful expression of how they would like to be remembered

Affordability

Cremation may be a more affordable choice than a traditional burial.

Flexibility

There are many options available to make the cremation as personal and meaningful as a traditional burial. You can hold public viewing and visitations, provide a chapel or graveside service, and even host a reception for family and friends.

Environmentally Friendly

Families that want an environmentally friendly memorial may choose cremation, which can reduce the amount of chemicals, caskets, metals and varnishes interred in the soil. Modern cremation chambers used in Canada are inspected and approved by the Ministry of the Environment, and emit relatively low emission levels.

Final Resting Place Options

Once placed in an urn, cremated remains can be housed in an indoor or outdoor mausoleum or columbarium, buried in a family burial plot, or placed in a special urn garden. Simply let us know what your wishes are, and we can discuss all the options available to you.
