What might add to costs?

Winnipeg Free Press Obituary

~based on length

NO MARKUP SERVICE

Obituaries in the Winnipeg Free Press 100% optional and are priced based on length. You'll pay no more that what you would pay handling things yourself.

Many of our clients will opt to publish a short version in the Winnipeg Free Press and include a few lines pointing the reader to the longer, free version on our website. This can drastically reduce overall costs of publishing an obituary.

Land Titles Death Certificate

$30 - no tax

AT COST - NON-PROFIT

A death certificate from the Province of Manitoba is needed to handle land titles changes after death. These certificates are $30 but not everyone owns property, so not everyone needs one.

One certificate is needed for each province in which property is owned.

$295 or $395* + gst

DURING ELEVATED COVID-19 RISK LEVEL PERIODS

To reduce cost to our clients, we engage a transfer service when a death occurs at home or in a Nursing Home or at a Private Residence. The deceased is moved to a temperature controlled, private holding facility until the death is registered and the family has an opportunity to authorize services.

*In order to ensure the safety of our staff, so that we may continue to serve the community of Winnipeg, in the event a decedent is COVID positive, or if the death occurs in an environment where COVID positive patients are present, we will be engaging a third-party transfer service that has introduced additional safety measures and equipment on top of their normal procedures to ensure appropriate protection for themselves and the public.

Private Viewing

$995

NO EMBALMING

Our Simple Cremation Package is designed for families who are not interested in a viewing.

For families who would prefer to arrange a private viewing before cremation takes place we can accommodate groups of up to 25 and have ample parking.

(We are currently limited to 5 due to COVID)
