All About Funeral Pre-Planning

All About Funeral Pre-Planning

Planning for the future is a natural and important part of our everyday lives. We contribute to retirement plans, take out life insurance, and create wills. As your family matures, pre-planning your own funeral becomes part of this important planning process. There is no charge for pre-planning and it consists of a basic conference with our staff, where the funeral director will record statistical information, service selection, and casket selection. We keep the information on file and at the time of need will relay your selections to your family and estate representatives relieving them of the anxiety involved with making rushed decisions.

In addition to pre arranged funeral services, we offer Guaranteed Funeral Costs through a pre-payment option where your payment is invested into a trust account at the TD bank. The deposited funds will accrue interest until the contract is fulfilled (when the services and supplies are delivered) or the contract is canceled. Our plan allows you the option to cancel, change, or transfer your arrangement at any time in the years ahead (please refer to your funeral service contract). Our funding program strictly adheres to the Funeral, Burial and Cremation Services Act, 2002, ensuring complete protection for your investment, yourself, and your family. We will be pleased to answer any questions you may have about your prepayment options.
