Cremation Services & Products

Traditional Casket Burial

We do not profit from

most products and services provided.

All of our arrangers are experienced, licensed, and fully accredited

by the Funeral Board of Manitoba.

We're different...

How we're different...

Ethical Death Care, Cremation & Funeral Planning, provides all of the services of a traditional funeral home, but with a very different approach. We service our clients with integrity, dignity, and direct care. We own our own crematory and handle everything ourselves.

We provide full-disclosure pricing and do not profit from the sale of products like crematory fees, urns, caskets, catering, headstones, or obituary publications.

Our clients pay what we pay, which means we never have a reason to encourage a family to buy things they don't want or need.

We do not ask for payment in advance and if a family has trouble affording our services, we will provide service at whatever price they CAN afford.

We are located downtown at 530 St. Mary Avenue one block off Portage Avenue between the Winnipeg Art Gallery and the University of Winnipeg. We have ample, free parking within a few feet of our door.

  • Most items provided at cost (not-for-profit)

  • We do not require payment prior to essential services being performed (transfer of deceased, cremation, government notifications etc).

  • Death Certificates are always included.

  • We complete CPP Death & Survivors benefits applications and notify Service Canada of the death at no charge.

  • No charge estate/executor consultation to assist with estate management. We ensure our clients know exactly how to manage the estate, specific to the circumstances relative to the deceased.

Give us a call, we'd be happy to speak with you and explain who we are and how we work.
