"We are a non-profit co-op with ethics. Our members believe everyone deserves a respectful and dignified funeral for a reasonable price, without added hassle and pressure on your family when it comes time to make the decisions."
Over time, the cost of funeral services has increased greatly. Today, the average cost of a basic funeral in Canada is between $7500 and $10,000. As a member of our memorial society, you can plan your farewell with the confidence that you have the largest consumer group in Alberta protecting your interests - and the interests of your loved ones when it's time to make your funeral arrangements.
Our members have access to funeral plans at locally-owned funeral homes that cost significantly less than what non-members pay. As a member, you can also register your funeral preferences so it is easier on your family when it comes time to make the tough decisions. Purchase your membership.
The cost to become a lifetime member is $20 plus $2.15 for the e-commerce fee if payment is made online. If you want to avoid the extra charge, please mail in your payment. Memberships are activated upon successful payment.
