In 1963, the Catholic Church recognized cremation as an alternative to traditional burial (Instruction Ad resurgendum cum Christo regarding the burial of the deceased and the conservation of the ashes in the case of cremation). Since 1990, the diocese of Ottawa has taken over the crematorium located in Hope Cemetery, thus serving the Catholic population of Ottawa.
We comply with the highest criteria enforced by national regulators throughout the entire cremation process. Our centre welcomes families of all religions and cultures.
We allow a limited number of relatives to be present at the beginning of the cremation process.
Consult one of our experienced counsellors to choose the option that better suits your needs and budget.
