The Memorial Society of BC Program

Memorial Society of BCPEACE OF MIND FOR YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES

The Memorial Society of BC is a non-profit consumer-protection organization.  With over 200,000 members, it is Canada's largest consumer group.  The Society is dedicated to promoting simple, dignified end of life arrangements.

Surviving friends or relatives must make  important decisions regarding the arrangement of their loved one's final wishes.  Grieving survivors are probably the most vulnerable consumers in a sales situation.  It is not uncommon for such vulnerable people to be talked into overly expensive, and often inappropriate, funeral arrangements.  A preplan made out by the deceased reduces the stress on survivors at time of need

A special rate for BCGEU members of $30 Lifetime Membership in the Society provides access to contracted funeral providers where savings are 10-40%.  The contracts forbid "up-selling", and other forms of unethical practices, common in the funeral industry.  Preplans made by members are kept on file in the Society's office.

Download a simple application and the preplan form from our web site, which also will give you all the information you require.  Just put your BCGEU membership number anywhere on the application along with the heading BCGEU in front of it.  You will then only be charged the $30 not the $40 as advertised on the form.
