Current restrictions relating to funerals are as follows:

Formal funeral services (directed by a licensed provider) are permitted to have 25% of the venue's capacity. That means our current on-site MAXIMUM capacity is 26 people. There are no exceptions to this rule. 

Proof of double COVID-19 vaccination is required to attend any funeral related event, hosted by us, either on-site or off-site, indoors or outdoors.

Masks and social distancing will be strictly enforced.  

Funeral Receptions are not being held on-site at this time. 

Informal funeral services (held by family, on their own) must follow the current informal gathering limit, as mandated by the province of Nova Scotia.‚Äč

Thank you for helping us all  to do our part to flatten the variant wave.
