To plan a funeral in your own style
It is never too early to start planning the funeral you want. To ensure that your wishes will be respected by your loved ones, consider putting your funeral pre-arrangements in writing. Written in a simple and concise way, this document will enable your family and friends to know what your last wishes are, while freeing them from an emotional and financial burden at the time of your death.
At the Aeterna Complex, we offer you several tools that will help you to ask yourself questions about your last wishes. Our personalized logbook (It's My Life) will give you the opportunity to provide various information related to your will, mandate in the event of incapacity, organ donation and various information on your genealogy and emergency contacts.
When making your pre-arrangements, you will inform your loved ones of the type of service or ceremony you have chosen, your selection of a casket or urn and all your preferences regarding the organization of your funeral.
What advantages for you and your loved ones
Planning your funeral is beneficial not only to you, but also to your loved ones. This will give you peace of mind knowing that your wishes are clearly stated, while relieving those around you of great stress upon your death.
From a financial perspective, pre-arrangements provide an opportunity to plan the expenses associated with funeral services, protecting you in this way from the increase in the cost of living. You can also pay for the transaction in full, in advance, or spread your payments over time, according to the terms and conditions that suit you. We offer flexible payment options, so you can pay in a way that is convenient to you.
By taking this step, you will avoid placing an undesirable financial burden on your family, while also avoiding needless administrative concerns for them.
Be protected by the law
Please be aware that pre-arrangements are governed by the Prearranged Funeral Services and Sepultures Act. This law, in effect since March 1, 1988, is enforced by the Consumer Protection Office.
At Aeterna Funeral Complex, the funds are deposited in trust, as required by law.
