Our Funeral Pre-Planning Option in Ottawa & Surrounding Area

pre planning

Planning a funeral in your time of need can be very emotional and stressful. That’s why planning one’s own or a family member’s funeral in advance has become commonplace in our society, especially as part of the retirement or estate-planning process. Funeral pre-planning in Ottawa & surrounding regions is easy with Heritage Funeral Complex.

Some people simply record their wishes and leave them with us, leaving payment to the estate or next of kin. Others choose to pay in advance. You can rest assured that whatever decisions you make regarding pre-payment, your investment is safe and secure—and protected by law.

Here at Heritage Funeral Complex, we deposit all prepaid funds with Guaranteed Funeral Deposits of Canada. All funds are CDIC-insured to a maximum of $100,000.

At Heritage Funeral Complex in Ottawa, we offer complete pre-need, at-need and bereavement services. Our licensed and dedicated funeral pre-planning team in Ottawa will help you to arrange a personalized funeral service, tailored to suit your family’s needs and budget.

Pre-Payment Options

Pre-paying your funeral reduces stress and financial burden on your loved ones after your passing. We can co-ordinate a payment plan that suits your needs, from a single payment plan to monthly bank account withdrawals. By pre-paying your funeral, you eliminate your family second guessing on if they have spent too much or too little on your funeral.

Pre-payment also protects you and your family from inflation, and the growth is non-taxable. Depending on your region, if your funeral costs less than the amount you have put aside, those funds will be refunded to your beneficiaries. For more information on what is applicable in your region, simply speak to your funeral director.

Each year thousands of people decide to pre-plan and pre-pay their funeral. These plans are designed to be flexible to accommodate the many changes that often occur in people’s lives.
