What We Do For You

  1. We negotiate with over 30 contracted funeral homes throughout BC to provide simple cremation or funeral services at a lower cost.
  2. We assist your family at their time of need.
  3. We provide a Planning Form to guide your family and the funeral director at the time of death or earlier if you prefer pre‑arrangement and pre‑payment of funeral services.
  4. We protect your privacy by placing you, not the Society, in charge of your Planning Form.
    Note: We do not retain the form in our office or on our computers.
  5. We use volunteer office staff to limit the Society's operating costs.
  6. We are a non‑profit society whose funds are dedicated to promoting the Society and delivering benefits to you, our members.
