Dear Friends

Our funeral homes continue to monitor the evolving situation concerning COVID-19 and all recommendations of our health professionals. The health and protection of the families we serve, attendees and our staff is of the utmost importance.

At this time we are continuing to conduct private funeral services however families may choose to limit the size and scope of services.  Social support and honouring your loved ones life without delay is key in the grieving process and we understand that the Celebration of your loved ones life is important.  We have put a number of measures in place to make sure our community can continue to grieve, mourn and Celebrate your loved one in the most appropriate manner possible.

  1.  The Ontario Chief Medical Officer recommends to limit gatherings to 10 people
  2. Live-streaming : With the permission of each family we will be providing live-streaming of all gatherings in our chapels, for those families that wish it at no additional cost.
  3. Social distancing  : limiting contact, large gatherings and seating spacing are key preventative measures
  4. Online condolences : If you cannot attend the gathering or view the live-stream each obituary will be on our website.  Click on your loved ones name to read their obituary or to leave an online condolence for the family.

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.

As always, we are here to help families iin the safest way possible.

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
- advising of no contact and space for all attendees

- a supply of hand soap in all washrooms

- antibacterial dispensers at the front door and throughout the funeral home
- tissue/Kleenex at the front door and throughout the funeral home

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.
