In Canada, the popularity of cremation is steadily increasing. While cremation can be a simpler and more affordable option than a traditional burial, it still provides a meaningful way to say your final goodbye.
There are many options available to make your goodbye as personal and meaningful as a traditional burial:
Final Resting Place Options.
Urns can be buried, in addition to being kept in indoor/outdoor niches, mausoleums, columbariums or special urn gardens.
Chapel or Graveside Service.
Ideal for those who prefer everything that a traditional funeral or burial offers but still want to be cremated.
Public Viewings and Visitations.
Viewings and visitations can be an important part of the grieving process as it provides loved ones a final chance to say goodbye. And even with cremation, you can also choose to hold a reception for friends and family.
