Contracts may be signed via email or in person.  
Pre-arrangements are honoured.

.....Our condolences to you.........this is a really hard time............ It's important to remember to breathe. . . . . .

As of March 21st, the Province of Ontario lifted its mask mandate. Depending on the preference of each family, and published in the obituary, masks may be required or not at visitations, funerals, Celebrations of Life, and receptions. HOWEVER, we STRONGLY ENCOURAGE wearing masks, except when eating or drinking.

Masks must be worn while meeting one-on-one with our staff during arrangements, pre-arrangements, Estate Care or Bereavement Support meetings. This is in order to keep our staff healthy and able to work, as we are an essential service. 

As of March 1st, we do not need to ask for Proof of double Vaccination for any of the following. HOWEVER, if a family prefers, we are pleased to ask for Proof of Vax, and/or social distancing, and/or capacity limits with RSVP for guests.

The following are what we are able to offer, in compliance with the Public Health guidelines carefully followed*.  

1. Funerals and Celebrations of Life in our chapel or Celebration Centre at full capacity. 

2. Visitations for an unlimited number. 

3.  Graveside services at local cemeteries for an unlimited number of people.  

4. Receptions & Celebrations of Life in our Reception and Celebration Centre with food, beverages, including alcoholic, and live music. 

*Our staff will BE OFFERING medical masks to all, disinfecting,  screening ourselves daily, wearing KN95 masks except when eating or drinking, and working with KFLA Public Health as well as the Bereavement Authority of Ontario to be above-standard in following guidelines. 

We are pleased to say that all of our staff have provided us with proof of double vaccination and most have booster shots.

ONLY THOSE WITH NO SYMPTOMS of COVID-19, NO HOUSEHOLD CONTACT WITH THESE SYMPTOMS, AND NO ONE WHO SHOULD BE SELF-ISOLATING SHOULD COME INTO THE FUNERAL HOME. IN ORDER TO ENTER, YOU MUST BE ABLE TO PASS THE SCREENING AT THE DOOR, WHICH IS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LATEST PUBLIC HEALTH GUIDELINES. 

Thank you for trusting us at this hard time. 

Sincerely, 

Jim and Sarah
