Lock in your funeral costs at today's prices!

Today, it's never been easier to plan ahead! Did you know that most funeral establishments will lock in your funeral costs at today's prices using a plan purchased through Canada Purple Shield as payment? Canada Purple Shield is the gold standard for offering funeral funding options in Canada...use us to beat inflation!

 

How much does the average funeral cost? Everyone has different requirements and desires, but we have put together an average price list* based on current costs in  Canada. You determine what you want to plan for, and you put a Final Expense Plan in place valued at your chosen dollar amount.

For more information on any of these categories, please visit our Final Expense Solutions tab at the top of your page, or click here.

When you request a free consultation, one of our representatives will contact you to discuss your preferences, and will work with the funeral establishment of your choice to put a funeral plan in place. Let us help you check one more to-do off your list!

*Please note: Prices are determined by the chosen funeral establishment at the time of servicing. These prices are average costs only, and the included services will vary depending on your funeral establishment of choice. These average costs are to be used as guidelines only and are not guaranteed pricing by our insurance partners.

TruStage Executor Protection

Also known as our Executor Assistance & Emergency Fund 

If you wish to put aside funds for your executor or representative's benefit, we suggest you take into account:

  • Family members who may need financial assistance to travel home to attend your funeral or memorial.

  • A ball-park amount of any final bills that may need to be paid immediately.

  • Any lingering medical expenses.

  • Rent or mortgage payments until your estate has passed through probate.

  • Fees and costs related to collecting, printing and mailing your estate paperwork.

  • Our Final Documents service, which is a one-time purchase fee of $635, and can be included in your plan amount.

We suggest a plan amount of $2,500 to $5,000 depending on your circumstances.
