It’s Easy to Plan Ahead
Fill out a form online or meet with a member of our staff to put your plan in place. Anyone can create a plan, at any stage in their life, and you can always make changes if you wish.
Preplanning lets you create your own unique life celebration. Including your family in the planning process can help them feel connected to you both in life and in death, knowing that your arrangements reflect your desires
Relieve your Family’s Burden
Preplanning relieves your family of that burden and gives them more time and energy to focus on healing and remembrance. Preplanning reduces conflict so family members do not need to struggle to determine your final wishes
You Can Prepay
Prepayment means that you save money by being protected from inflation and price changes. We deposit all prepayments into financial Institutions that are approved by the AFSRB (Alberta Funeral Services Regulatory Board) where it remains until needed. Prepaying also provides peace of mind for your family, who won’t have to figure out your funeral expenses when the time comes. An added benefit is that these funds remain “outside the estate,” which eliminates taxation and helps the Personal Representative (Executor) who is responsible for payment of the funeral account.
What If I Move?
We keep a record of your preplanned arrangements and all prepayments. Preneed Insurance accounts can easily be reassigned to any funeral home across Canada.
