List of BC Cemeteries
Consumer Protection BC is responsible for the designation and licensing of all BC cemeteries under the Cremation, Interment and Funeral Services Act. As a result, Consumer Protection BC retains a list of all cemetery sites in BC, but does not retain information regarding the names of specific individuals interred in these cemeteries.
As a service to aid in historical research, Consumer Protection BC occasionally produces a list of all BC cemeteries from our database. This list is sorted by city and shows all cemeteries, regardless of their licence status. Some records may be repeated in the list, indicating that the cemetery has renewed its licence over time.
Labour Mobility for Funeral Directors and Embalmers
Consistent with the terms of the BC/AB Trade, Investment and Labour Mobility Agreement (TILMA) and the Canadian Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT), Consumer Protection BC recognizes (for the purposes of granting a licence) those funeral directors and embalmers who are currently fully licensed and in good standing with any other regulatory body in Canada.
The application requirements for applicants from other jurisidctions include the provision of your current certification, attestation from the issuing authority of the regulatory body confirming the licence is in good standing, completion of the Consumer Protection BC application form, successful completion of the BC legislation examination which is administered by the BC Funeral Association and payment of the appropriate fee. If you are unsure whether your certification meets the criteria for labour mobility, please contact our office.
The Consumer Protection BC Administrative Fee Brochure
Following the introduction of a new administrative fee as part of the overall funeral provider licensing fees in 2005, Consumer Protection BC produced an informational brochure for use by BC funeral providers when making arrangements with families.
