PROCEDURE

  • If the person dies at home, you must first contact the family doctor to have him come and confirm the death. Then, contact us so that we can come to seek the body, once the doctor will have signed the death Bulletin.
  • If the death occurs in a hospital, contact us as soon as possible so that we can take the necessary steps for the transfer of the deceased person to our funeral home.
  • During this call, an appointment is fixed for the planning of the funeral.

During this meeting, we will guide you in the choice of rituals to honour the memory of the loved one and we plan with you the following details:

  • The church, the chapel, the celebrant

  • The writing and publication of a death notice in the newspapers and on the internet sites

  • The choice of flowers, bookmarks, gratitude cards

  • The reception room, the caterer

  • The choice of a columbarium

On the legal plan, we facilitate you the task by completing the forms in order to:

  • Register the death and request the death certificate to the civil status

  • Apply for benefits and/or annuities

  • Cancel the annuities of Quebec and the Federal Government, the driving license, the health and social insurance cards and a Firearms License

  • And more…
