COVID-19 Update

As of Monday, October 4th, 2021

Proof of full vaccination is required for ALL indoor & outdoor funeral events. 

For more information please see

We are Currently in Phase 4 of the Nova Scotia Provincial Re-Opening Plan.

In adherence with Nova Scotia Public Health directives, we are now using all available resources to connect with clients, including email, phone and video calls.  We are asking for the public to call for an appointment, when possible. We will be asking screening questions upon entry, along with collecting contact tracing information. Masks are mandatory in all parts of our facility. 

Should you require information or assistance with funeral pre-arrangements, please note that this can still be done, via phone and/or email.

Please call 902-477-5601 for assistance or email

Current restrictions relating to funerals are as follows:

Formal funeral services (directed by a licensed provider) are permitted to have 50% of the venue's capacity. That means our current on-site MAXIMUM capacity is 55 people. There are no exceptions to this rule. 

Registration is required to attend a visitation or funeral service. 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 informal gathering limit. The limits are currently: 

 - Indoor limit is your household plus 10 people without social distancing and masks 

- Outdoor limits is your household plus 25 people without social distancing and masks.  


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