Death Certificates


Before the business and legal issues of the estate can be pursued, it will be necessary to ensure that you obtained Proofs of Death from the funeral home.  A Proof of Death signed and sealed by the funeral home is a legal document that is accepted by most institutions in the province. We provide each family 10 copies as it is always better to have a few more than what you think you will need. Most agencies will only accept originals and not photocopies, but once they have seen an original, many will make a photocopy for their records.

These certificates are needed to transfer the title on a house, automobile, and bank accounts, as well as applying for insurance benefits, pension benefits and a variety of other things.

A certified death certificate obtained from the Provincial Registrar Generals Office should only be required when there are holdings outside of the province or country, and the funeral home document does not suffice.  There is a cost to obtaining a certified copy and possibly a lengthy waiting period.
