Funeral Planning

Determining your wishes for a funeral in advance of death. Most funeral homes provide this preplanning service. Prepayment is not required. Prepaying or prearranging a funeral is similar to preplanning except that the arrangements are planned with a contract and paid for in advance. The funds paid are held in trust either by the funeral home or by a provincial organization. Most provinces have legislation that deals with prepaid funerals.
