What are some of the benefits of advanced planning?

Many individuals have found that planning for this eventuality in advance makes the process easier, since funeral arrangements made after the death of a loved one can be an emotional and stressful experience. Advanced Planning can also make the funeral service more personal and meaningful for survivors because the wishes of the deceased are made known in advance.

Many funeral homes will prepare your wishes in writing and keep them on file at the funeral home, without having to pay. Or, an estimate can be obtained and you can prepay in advance, locking in the cost of the funeral at today’s price.

Different payment options exist for advanced planning, so check with the funeral home. Term financing may be available, and many funeral homes also take credit cards. Some provinces require that advanced planning funds only be accepted by licensed funeral homes, and funds are placed with the Public Trustee or a trust company. Prepayment is refundable any time upon written request.

Many funeral homes offer advanced planning assistance without obligation, and this information can be provided to you in person or sent to your home to review at your own convenience. If you would like more detailed information you may visit our Advanced Planning section within this website.
