“That which is good to be done, cannot be done too soon; and if it is neglected to be done early, it will frequently happen that it will not be done at all.”
– Bishop Mant

Nobody likes talking about funerals, but isn’t your peace of mind worth it?

More than 80 percent of Canadians age 30 and older think funeral planning is a good idea. And millions of people nationwide have already pre-planned funeral arrangements through their local funeral homes. We hope that the rest of our information will help you to make informed choices.

What will my children think if I start making my funeral arrangements?

Attitudes vary from family to family, but most view pre-arranging as a responsible, loving thing to do. It will bring peace of mind to your loved ones, knowing arrangements are made to reflect your personal wishes.

But planning for a funeral is for older people, isn’t it?

Young or old, pre-arranging your funeral is planning for tomorrow. We buy life insurance to protect our families in the event that tragedy strikes. Having your funeral planned will ease financial and emotional burdens and protect your loved ones at a vulnerable time.

There is a lot involved in planning for a funeral, how do I decide what I want?

The idea is to plan. Take your time, discuss your funeral options with family and your funeral director. You can make changes at any time without additional cost.

If you’re still not sure preplanning is right for you, ask yourself these questions:

  • If my death occurred tomorrow, what would the funeral I want include?
  • If my death occurred tomorrow, who will make the arrangements?
  • If my death occurred tomorrow, where would the money needed to pay for my funeral come from?
  • If my death occurred tomorrow, does my family know what I want?
  • If my death occurred tomorrow, what would I regret most regarding my final arrangements?

How Funeral Planning Works:

  1. You make your funeral preferences known by meeting with or e-mailing your funeral professional.
  2. You arrange to pay for your funeral with lump sum payments or monthly payments either insured or uninsured.
  3. Our funeral home provides all designated services and merchandise at the time of need.
  4. Proceeds from your Funeral Plan will be paid directly to the funeral home.
