Access to Cemetery Grounds

Our cemetery gate hours have returned to the pre-COVID-19 norms:

              Daily (including Holidays)                     8:00 AM - 5:30 PM

We want to thank our rights holders and our neighbouring communities for their patience and understanding while the gates were closed earlier this Spring.  

 

Access to Facilities

Our mausolea and niche building facilities are accessible for those wishing to visit loved ones.

Please note that there are restrictions to the number of individuals who can be inside funeral and cemetery facilities (including mausolea, niche buildings and crematoria) as per Bereavement Authority of Ontario (BAO) directives which are based on facility and room capacities. Accordingly, if volumes are high staff members and security personnel will be monitoring access flow and restricting access accordingly.

Entrance to the Administrative Offices will be by appointment only. The doors will be locked at all times. For essential needs, please call the office number for assistance (see Contact Us).
