Safe Distance Protocol

Effective March 1st , 2022, the Ontario Government rescinded previous restriction on large gatherings at funerals and now advised for outdoor and indoor services there is no longer a maximum number of attendees . We will continue with the additional precautions listed below specific to interments, entombments and niche Inurnments. We will be strictly enforcing this at all our locations. We ask that all attendees wear a mask.

We have implemented a Safe Distance Protocol for employees and the public. This means our employees will have no direct physical contact such as handshakes and hugs with one another or members of the public and they will observe a 12-foot distance wherever possible.


All visitors to our facilities will be screened as follows:

  1. Have you or any member of your immediate family been in contact with someone who has or is suspected to have COVID-19?
  2. Are you or any member of your immediate family in self-isolation?
  3. Has Public Health been involved?
  4. Do you have any of these symptoms:
    • Fever
    • New onset of cough
    • Chills or shivers
    • Shortness of breath

If visitors answer YES to any of the above, we will be asking them to return home. If the purpose of their visit was to make cemetery arrangements, they will be instructed to call us and we will conduct the meeting remotely by phone.

Additional precautions specific to:

A. Interment

  • Individuals will be permitted to approach the grave to place flowers on the casket once our employees have had the opportunity to distance themselves a minimum of 12 feet
  • The casket will not be lowered until the attendees have vacated the area

Effective as of November 23, 2020 new protocols at our PLLP Crematorium locations:

  • We will no longer provide Rush Cremations
