Q) Do cremations take place at a funeral home?

A) The new “Funeral, Burial, and Cremation Services Act” came into effect on July 1st, 2012.

This allows that crematoriums may now be set up in areas other than cemeteries. The best way to know this answer is to ask your service provider where will the cremation service take place.

Q) Should I make arrangements with a funeral home or transfer service?

A) The choice is yours. Bear in mind that a funeral home is generally a long established business with the resources to work with multiple families at one time, if necessary.

Funeral establishments meet or exceed the requirements and expectations of both the Ontario Funeral and Cemetery Professionals, and the Crematorium as well. Economically, funeral homes offer competitively priced arrangements while offering a wider range and higher standard of services to your family.

Q) Can a cremation be witnessed by the family?

A) Such arrangements can be made with your funeral home and are subject to the Crematoriums policies and conditions.

Q) What's new in the industry?

A) On July 1st, 2012, the cemeteries act changed. The new legislation allows crematoriums to be free standing (not on cemetery or funeral home properties).
Read More

It also allows crematoriums, cemeteries and funeral establishments to all operate (under separate licences) from a single location.

For the consumer there may or may not be an advantage in arrangements with these 'visitation centres'. Fair market and competitive pricing might be better achieved by dealing with each entity separately. The new legislation now allows this choice to be left to the consumer.

For other important changes and how they may affect you the new act may be viewed online or you may contact the Cemeteries Regulations Unit for more information.

Q) Can I deal directly with the Crematorium?

A) The Innisvale Crematorium is not licenced for the transportation of deceased persons.

Your provider of transportation will also look after administrative needs such as obtaining a Death Certificate, Registration of Death, Coroner’s Certificate for Cremation, A Cremation Contract, and any such other administrative needs you may require.

Q) Do all local providers choose the Innisvale Cemetery and Crematorium?

A) Most do, however there is no obligation for a transfer service or funeral home to choose Innisvale.It's good policy to ask your provider where the cremation will be performed.
