Funeral Planning

The saying goes “the only two things you can count on in life are death and taxes”. It is not a matter of if you will need to plan and pay for a funeral, it’s a matter of when. Pre planning ensures funds are available and that a plan is in place. I can help with that, but sorry, I can’t do anything about taxes.

“It makes it so much easier when you have a preplanned funeral. When I experience grief and loss having major decisions made ahead meant that I didn’t have to make tough decisions when my head just wasn’t in it.

When you are grieving your vulnerable, having a pre plan means that you can control the budget and gives the family peace of mind on what to do. “

Funeral preplanning is two steps.
      Deciding what your wishes are for end of life care
      Creating a Purple Shield Policy with funds to pay for your wishes.
A “cremation container” or “cremation casket” is required in Canada. This is not optional everyone MUST have one.
Cremation caskets range from simple wood boxes to full traditional caskets.
Crematoriums are expensive to operate so your funeral home/local crematorium will require you to purchase the cremation casket through the funeral home. They do this so they can be confident of the quality and safety of the materials being used.
There are two options currently available in most of Canada. Traditional earth burial or cremation
Urns must be large enough. Plan on 200 cubic inches or 14 cups of space. A good visual would be about the size of a 4L of soda.
