Celebrating Dad on Father’s Day

Blog Home

This weekend is Father’s Day, and it’s time for many of us to remember our lost parent. Given the current pandemic, it’s understandable if you don’t yet feel comfortable making a visit this Sunday. To that end, we have created this infographic and short video that we hope provide you with meaningful ways to honour and share memories from the safety of your home. 

For those who are planning to visit this weekend, please note that although there has been some recent loosening of restrictions with respect to gathering sizes, COVID-19 remains a reality, and the health and safety of our guests and staff remains our top priority. We anticipate that there will be a higher volume of visitors than a typical weekend, so we ask that you please help by doing your part as well. 

Physical distancing of a least six feet (or two meters) will still be maintained at all times from anyone who isn’t in your immediate family or household. Please know that depending on the number of visitors at a given time, you may be asked to wait before entering the grounds.

Our cemetery grounds, mausoleums, outdoor structures and buildings are now open for visitors and guests. Please note that there are still safety measures in place; including wearing masks where appropriate. You may be asked to wait before entering if we have reached our maximum occupancy limit. We appreciate your patience and corporation.

For our locations with onsite funeral homes; they will be open, but we ask that you please call ahead to make an appointment.

Our gardens are starting to bloom, and we’re thankful to our staff who work diligently to maintain the beautiful landscapes of our locations. We hope that if you come to visit a loved one, you find peace and serenity on our grounds.

Thinking of the dads and everyone who is missing someone this weekend.
