COVID-19 Virus Protocol

With the ongoing situation with the state of emergency declared by the Ontario government, we are making changes to protect the families we serve, the public and our staff.

We ask that if you are not feeling well, have a cough or fever or have been travelling outside of Canada, to remain at home.  Condolence messages to the family can be left using our website.  Arrangement conferences can take place over the phone and electronic signatures can replace original signatures.

No public gatherings are will be arranged at this time.  Visitors who do come are asked to offer condolences and words of comfort instead of a hug or handshake and to be mindful of social distancing practices.

We have enhanced safety measures in place such as continuous spot cleaning, hand sanitizers, and the removal of any items that come in constant contact with the public.

We realize that despite the current challenges with the COVID-19 virus families still need and deserve support. We encourage everyone to talk to people impacted by the loss of a loved one over the phone, or by text, or Facetime or Skype. Old fashioned letter writing to share memories and express feelings, and offer condolences are always appreciated. For those who cannot leave their homes, we suggest doing something as simple as lighting a candle in their loved one’s honour.

We remain optimistic that these conditions will only last for a short term with your continued support.  We will keep you updated as we receive new directions from the Ontario government and the Bereavement Authority of Ontario
