Pre-arrangements are a contract between you and the funeral home to which you entrust and pay in advance the organization of your funeral. You can plan every aspect of your funeral to your taste: what the ceremony will be like, how the body or ashes will be disposed of, the coffin or urn you select, the sepulture, etc., and the funeral home will have to respect all your requests.

Pre-arranged funerals generate substantial savings since the payment at the time of the agreement is final and therefore protected from the increase in the cost of living. In addition, they spare your loved ones from having to make decisions about your funeral or having to pay for it at a time when they will be affected by your death. Take a look at all the benefits.

Where does your money go? The law states that when the contract is signed, the funeral home must place the amount of your payment in a trust account where it will remain until your death.

You can cancel your contract and get your money back. Magnus Poirier will reimburse 100% of your payment, and you will also receive the interest accumulated in the trust account, according to the Consumer Price Index. See Quebec’s Act respecting arrangements for funeral services and sepultures.

In order to always serve you better and respect your wishes or those of your loved one, before any funeral pre-arrangement and arrangement, Magnus Poirier and your funeral director make sure that the beneficiary does not already have a funeral contract, as stipulated by the Registre des contrats d’arrangements funéraires préalables (link only available in French).
