IMPORTANT MESSAGE

PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR OFFICES WILL BE CLOSED FOR LABOUR DAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2021, BUT ALL OUR CEMETERIES WILL REMAIN OPEN.

THANK YOU

 

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.

PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THIS INFORMATION!

FOURNIER BOULEVARD WILL BE CLOSED FROM THE LADY ABERDEEN BRIDGE TO LAMBERT STREET ON SATURDAY, JULY 31, FOR THE GATINEAU TRIATHLON.  ACCESS TO LES JARDINS DU SOUVENIR WILL ONLY BE POSSIBLE FROM HULL, VIA LAMBERT STREET, THEN BÉRIAULT STREET.

Transfer of my funeral pre-arrangements

You made your pre-arrangement 20, 15 or 10 years ago, or more recently, based on your personal situation at the time and the funeral traditions and practices of that time, but now your wishes have changed. Now you would prefer funeral services that are more in keeping with newer trends.

Here is what you can do:

  1. Cancel your current pre-arrangement (check the terms and conditions of cancellation with the funeral home). Note that a penalty of up to 10% is possible. However, a contract signed elsewhere than with a funeral company can be cancelled within 30 days with no penalty;
  2. Cash the reimbursement; and
  3. Plan your last wishes once again with Les Jardins du Souvenir.

The Government of Quebec has specific legislation governing funeral arrangements and pre-arrangements. To find out more, see the Act respecting prearranged funeral services and sepultures, RSQ c. A-23.001.
