The BAO (Bereavement Authority of Ontario) is issuing this Registrar’s Directive in alignment with the Government of Ontario’s Step Three of its Roadmap to Reopen announcement today.

Indoor funeral services

  • Indoor funeral services are permitted with physical distancing of two metres (six feet) between people.
  • No capacity limit, except for the physical distancing requirement. 
  • Masks or face coverings are required indoors.
  • Passive screening continues: There must be passive screening of guests, meaning have COVID signage at the entrance for guests to self-assess. (Here’s a link to the BAO’s screening sign, found on our COVID-19 web section.)
  • Guests must still be logged to enable contact tracing. Records must be kept for 30 days.
  • All attendees and staff must adhere to local public health unit restrictions.

Outdoor funerals / Services at cemeteries

  • No capacity limit, except for the physical distancing requirement.
  • Cemeteries can restrict access as they deem necessary, as usual. 
  • All attendees and staff must adhere to local public health unit restrictions.

Staffing ratios

  • There will no longer be a set staffing ratio.
  • Funeral establishments and cemeteries are responsible for ensuring physical distancing and the wearing of masks or face coverings indoors.

At this time funeral home doors remain locked to assist with the control and implementation of Provincial Government laws.  If attending to the funeral home outside of regularly scheduled visitations or services please call the office phone number as posted at the front door.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Options during these times of social distancing and grieving:

• Grief does not wait until the pandemic is over

• Options are available to include everyone : family, friends, neighbours & co-workers

You can have:

• Cremation or burial now and Celebration of Life at a later date

• Private family viewing, visitation or service now with a public gathering at a later date

• Live-streaming will allow family, friends, neighbours and co-workers to view each service live in real-time (also available after the service is over), upload pictures, sign a guest book and share memories in real-time. After the family has given authorization each service will have their own unique link and will be available on each individual obituary page of our website. Click on the link, register and you will be included in the live-stream.

NEW - streaming is now available for services that are not held in the funeral home.  Whether the service is at graveside, in a place of worship or a hall we can record and upload the service for all your familiy and friends to view.

• When we physically can’t be together, express your condolences on our website or email to the funeral home so the family feels your support

• Friends & family can email messages of support to the funeral home or leave them on our website to be read during the livestream service and as a permanent remembrance for the family

We are here to help you through this difficult time in a way to assist your family while keeping the health of everyone in mind.

 As always, we are here to help families in the safest way possible for all cremation & burial arrangements

Other safeguards we are implementing:
- Frequent cleaning and disinfecting of all surfaces within our facility
- Limiting physical contact and space
- Register book pens will be changed out and cleaned frequently

- Antibacterial dispensers at the front door and throughout the funeral home
- Washrooms are cleaned continuously

We all have a key role to play in limiting the spread of COVID-19 and ask everyone to think ahead about the actions they take to stay healthy and PLEASE if you are sick or feel un-well, stay home until you are well again.

We are available 24hours if a death occurs, you need assistance or have any questions.

With a history in funeral service extending back to 1887, we take great pride in the exceptional legacies with which we've been entrusted and are committed to upholding the treasured traditions of our communities. It is equally important to us to ensure that every family we serve has the opportunity to consider all the current options and technology available to help them create a memorial experience that meets their unique needs. Our website is an important part of that effort.

Here you will find details of our current services and have the opportunity to send condolences to a family or pledge a memorial donation. You can also learn more about our facilities, services, preplanning options and other information. We've even provided maps and directions if you're trying to find us.

We have designed our site to be both informative and convenient for you. We hope you find it helpful and welcome your comments if you see ways in which we can improve it.

Thank you for visiting.
