Funeral rights

Making funeral arrangements can be overwhelming and very difficult, whether you are planning ahead or not. Certain aspects of funerals services are regulated in BC to protect you during a vulnerable time. Funeral homes and funeral directors must hold a licence with us, be trained and meet certain requirements.

Have you talked about end-of-life wishes with your loved ones? While these can be uncomfortable conversations, it’s important to have them before it becomes necessary. This can help ensure decisions are made based on information and preferences, as opposed to time constraints and emotions.
