Petitioning Premier of Ontario Kathleen Wynne

Require Funeral Homes, Cemeteries, and Cremation Services to post price lists on websites

This petition supported by the undersigned is directed to the Ontario Government and its elected M.P.P's, in response to the recent media expose of shady , deceptive and unethical sales practices of some large Funeral and Cemetery conglomerates.  We respectfully demand that the Funeral, Burial and Cremation Services Act. 2002. , be amended to require that all Funeral, Cemetery and Cremation Services providers post their General Price List on any websites the provider owns. The best way to combat these practices is to act in the interest of the grieving consumer, and make pricing as easily accessible  as possible. If a provider has a website, to provide information to the pubic, why would pricing not be something available on that website? Knowledge of pricing is  key to consumer information, and the number one question consumers are seeking answers to. This simple action of making this mandatory will help insure that grieving families are not taken advantage of during a time of loss.

This petition will be delivered to:
  • Premier of Ontario
    Kathleen Wynne
