Have you ever been to one of our cemeteries?

 

You should take advantage of the summer vacations to go for a walk in one of our cemeteries. Especially with the beautiful season coming up, the plants and flowers are blooming day by day. Our cemeteries are well laid out and you might make some discoveries like the Calvary of Notre-Dame Cemetery on Fournier Boulevard. Sometimes people leave small mementos or offerings. There are also some cemeteries that house historical figures from the region.

What is a funeral concession?

A concession is a right to use a portion of land in a cemetery exclusively for burial purposes, and hence to inter coffins and urns containing remains of the deceased. The concessionary does not become the owner of the land, which remains the property of Les Jardins du Souvenir, but is commonly its lessee. Use of the concession is granted for a period of 99 years from the date that the contract is signed. The concessionary is the owner of the monument that he or she purchases, which can be installed on the concession in conformity with the by-laws in effect for Les Jardins du Souvenir. The concessionary is responsible for the burial fees for the casket or urn, which are payable in accordance with the terms and conditions established by Les Jardins du Souvenir.
