Q. Why should I pre-plan my final arrangements?
A. Arranging in advance saves money and stress for your loved ones, guarantees your wishes will be carried out exactly as you’ve prescribed and provides you peace of mind, knowing it’s all been taken care of.
Q. My wishes are outlined in my Will... so why would I need to pre-arrange?
A. A Will is an important legal document, however, final wishes and directives contained in a Will may not be honoured because the Will isn’t read until after the funeral. Pre-plan with a specialist to be sure.

Q. When I provide money for a pre-arrangement, what guarantee do I have that my money is safe and will be available to pay for the product or service when it is actually required?
A. Legislation requires funeral and cemetery companies to put monies received on account of a pre-arrangement, into a trust account. These trust monies can only be taken out of trust to pay for the delivery of the pre-arranged product or service. Trust monies we receive are held by financial institutions that have Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation depositors insurance.
