Covid 19 Virus and its impact on Funeral Services

Please  remember that Covid - 19 is still prevalent, and as such we must still be diligent and follow  all the social distancing rules. We have come a long way and as much as it is important for families to be able to gather and grieve together , we must still refrain from hugging, kissing and handshaking, and stay 2 metres ( 6 feet) apart if you are not from the same family or designated social circle. 

We continue to serve our families  in the same compassionate & professional manner we have always done.

Visitations and services can be live streamed, allowing family and friends who are unable to attend to watch live.  We can also record the service and place it on our website for friends and family to view.

Memories may be shared with families directly, visit our website at

Arrangements can all be completed via phone and email for those that are more comfortable remaining in the safety and comfort of their home.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at (905)440-3595.

To everyone out there, thank you for your patience and understanding, these have been tough times on all of us.
