Know your obligations

As a BC-licensed crematorium, you need to make sure you understand all applicable laws and ensure you maintain your good standing as a business. This is a general overview of our expectations and the laws we oversee. We recommend all crematorium operators review the laws in detail, become aware of the municipal bylaws, and get independent legal advice, if necessary.

As part of our inspection or investigative process, we may impose an administrative monetary penalty (financial penalty) for certain violations of the laws we oversee. Every contravention has a base penalty amount, based in part on the seriousness of the infraction.
