Your Rights In Canada

1. Refuse to accept a casket or related funeral merchandise that has been purchased elsewhere.
2. Charge the family a fee for accepting the casket.
3. Increase the service price, which are itemized on their written price list.
4. Treat you or your family any different than if you had purchased a casket from the funeral home.
