When I buy a plot, do I own the land?

No, what you own is the right to determine who may be buried in your lot. These rights are call burial or interment rights. The land remains the property and responsibility of the municipality. 

Can I cancel my Interment Rights?

The purchaser of interment rights has the right to cancel an interment rights contract within thirty (30) days of signing the interment rights contract (“30-day cooling-off period”) by providing written notice of the cancellation to the Cemetery Operator.

Can I sell my plot to someone else?

Yes you may; however, there are specific conditions and steps required to ensure the proper transfer of ownership is registered in the cemetery records.

Can I be buried with my pet(s)?

No. Only human remains shall be interred in the cemetery and in no case shall the bodies of any animal be placed in any grave within the cemetery.

Am I required to have a vault?

A vault is a lined and sealed outer receptacle that houses a casket. Vaults are required in all graves within the cemetery. 

Additional Resources

The municipality must maintain Care and Maintenance Trust Funds when monuments and sales of plots take place. Only the interest earned from these accounts may be used by the municipality for the maintenance of municipal cemeteries.

With this being said, any potential donations toward the care and maintenance of the municipal cemeteries are greatly appreciated. Donations may be made by cash, debit or cheque at the municipal office. A tax receipt will be issued for any donations over $20.00.
