Burial Assistance

Assistance may be available to families unable to meet the cost of a funeral and burial.  An application will be taken and if eligible, the County will agree to pay the funeral costs up to a prescribed maximum.  Any income from insurance policies, Canada Pension Plan Death Benefits, family contributions, etc., will be taken into consideration for payment ahead of the County contribution.  Prior authorization must be received.
