Funerals

Helping you during this difficult time.

Losing a loved one is difficult and having to arrange a funeral can be overwhelming and confusing. We’re here to help and make things a little easier.

As our community continues to feel the impact of the coronavirus, we want to share with you what we are doing to keep everyone healthy and safe. Please be assured that we have protocols in place and are continually monitoring ongoing developments with the virus.

ISNA Canada’s Funeral Services continues to take extraordinary steps to protect all that enter our doors in the face of the coronavirus threat. We’ll be with you every step of the way.

We have a dedicated team with over a decade of experience. Please reach out to us by phone. If there’s anything we can do to ease your time of grief, do let us know.

We’ll walk you through the process. If required, we can meet to discuss arrangements.
