Quality services at your time of need

One of the most difficult experiences in life is the loss of a loved one. At a time of grief and personal vulnerability, you may be faced with making unanticipated decisions. Making arrangements that respect your loved one’s wishes in a way that befittingly commemorate their life is of the utmost importance. At the Funeral Co-operative of Ottawa, we will help you review your options and choose services tailored to your needs and within your means.

During this difficult period, the Funeral Co-operative of Ottawa can fulfill all funeral requirements in a dignified manner, offering compassionate assistance and support to families experiencing loss.

Our full range of quality services are priced on a co-operative, not-for-profit basis.


How our service works

The Funeral Co-operative of Ottawa has developed a unique service model to make affordable funeral arrangements available to our members and the community.  We minimalize costs by arranging to rent facilities in the community for visitations, religious and memorial services and receptions, while offering a small visitation room and reception room for on-site services. The choice of location is yours, whether a place of worship, banquet hall, community centre, legion hall, private home, or any location of special significance to you.

Our funeral director makes all necessary arrangements in a seamless manner according to your wishes. We are dedicated to providing the best services possible within your budget in a dignified manner that meets your needs and honours your traditions. We make a commitment to you that we will not try to sell you any funeral arrangements that you do not need or want.
