Honoured Legacy - When should end-of-life planning begin

When should end-of-life
planning begin?

There is no time like the present.

Did you know?

The average Canadian funeral costs $12,000.00 (2023).

Costs, fees and dues related to the estate and burial are due immediately at the time of passing.

Lock in rates.

Today’s prices are always better and lower than tomorrow’s.

Life insurance is
a fail safe.

But it may not be available until weeks or months after the funeral. Pre-planning expenses is most prudent option.

Make decisions together.

Have the discussion together now.

Choose how you will be commemorated and have your final wishes honoured.

It will eventually be an emotional time.

Take care of the details while you’re able, so your loved ones can have the emotional space to grieve.

Have your legacy honoured.

Ensure that your wishes are authentically reflected in both life and death.

The Bereavement
Authority of Ontario

Ensuring industry compliance.

The Bereavement Authority of Ontario (BAO) is a government delegated authority and notfor-profit corporation administering provisions of the Funeral, Burial and Cremation Services
Act, 2002 (FBCSA) on behalf of the Ministry of Public and Business Service Delivery.

Responsible for protection of the public interest, the BAO regulates, ensures compliance
with the law, and supports licensed:

• Funeral establishment operators, directors and preplanners;
• Cemetery, crematorium and alternative disposition operators;
• Transfer service operators; and
• Bereavement sector sales representatives across Ontario.

The BAO is wholly funded by licensee fees (not tax dollars).

The BAO’s Consumer Information Guide: A Guide to Death Care in Ontario is a free
consumer-protection information booklet.

The guide is designed to support informed consumer choices regarding funeral, burial,
cremation and hydrolysis services.

It is written for families and the public to know their rights and responsibilities before
entering into contracts with organizations that are licensed under the Funeral, Burial and
Cremation Services Act, 2002. All licensees of the BAO are required to provide consumers
with a copy of this guide.
