Cremation is an alternative to the burial process and it is chosen by many people because of religious beliefs, the desire to preserve the environment or it was requested by the person who died. Cremation is also a less expensive option in comparison to a burial. The remains are placed in a container that is combustible for cremation. Cremation is not an alternative to a funeral, but rather an alternative to burial or other forms of final disposition.
Cremated remains can be scattered or buried, or they may be kept with the family in a decorative urn. If you plan to take them out of province or country, please visit www.catsa.gc.ca or call 1-800-O-Canada for more information if you will be travelling with cremated remains on any airlines. We strongly suggest you advise the Funeral Director of your final disposition plans for the cremated remains, at the time of arrangements.
