WHAT TO DO IN THE EVENT OF A DEATH?

If a death occurs at home;

The first thing to do is to call 911 immediately. A physician from Urgence Santé will arrive to attest to the death. You should also contact Komitas Salon Funéraire so we may arrange the transport of the deceased. The next step will be to schedule a meeting with one of our directors to make the necessary funeral arrangements.

If a death occurs in an institutional setting;

If the death occurs in a hospital, a long-term care facility (CHSLD) or any other institution, simply contact Komitas Salon Funéraire so we may arrange the transport of the deceased.  The next step will be to schedule a meeting with one of our directors to make the necessary funeral arrangements.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS A FUNERAL?

A funeral is a ceremony to help family, friends, and community members honor their loved one and pay their respects. Funerals are dedicated to letting friends and family members of the deceased remember the life of their loved one while beginning on the road to healing.

WHAT IS THE BEST TYPE OF SERVICE FOR MY BELIEFS?

This is a question that only you can answer. Komitas Salon Funéraire offers a variety of memorial, tribute, and funeral services. The type of service is decided either by the deceased in a pre-planned guide or by the family at the time of passing.

The type of service you choose is dependent on a variety of factors which may include:

  • Whether you want a service held at a place of worship or the funeral home
  • Whether you want your service to follow the rituals of a religious denomination or not
  • Whether you would like to have a large, open service, or a small, private ceremony open to only selected relatives and loved ones
  • If you would like a memorial or tribute service without the presence of the body
CAN MY SERVICE BE PERSONALIZED?

Yes. At Komitas Salon Funéraire, we highly recommend personalizing your memorial service to celebrate your life in a way that makes you feel comfortable. Our funeral directors and assistants are always ready to discuss your options with you, tailoring your service to your wishes.

WHY ARE OBITUARIES NECESSARY?

An obituary notifies the community when a death has occurred, and when and where a service will be held. In the past, obituaries were placed in the local printed newspaper, but are increasingly posted online instead.

UPON CHOOSING A CREMATION, CAN A FUNERAL STILL BE HELD?

Of course. Upon choosing a cremation for your loved one, you’re simply selecting an alternative to a casket burial. Cremation often follows a funeral or memorial service, meaning that you can have a visitation service before cremation as well.

Every Commemoration Should Be Unique

We only live once. All the more reason a memorial service should be extraordinary.
