Know your obligations

As a BC-licensed operator of a place of interment, you need to make sure you understand all applicable laws and maintain your good standing as a business. This is a general overview of our expectations and the laws we oversee. We recommend that you 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.

Read the Business Practices and Consumer Protection Act.
Read the Cremation, Interment and Funeral Services Act.
