To the families we serve;

This is a time to take care of each other. As such, if you are unsure of your health, please take the self assessment located at the Toronto Public Health website.

During this time of COVID-19, our philosophy of “Making it easier for families” has never been more important. Our focus has always been and will continue to be the safety of the families and public we serve as well as our staff and community partners.

As the COVID-19 situation evolves, we will continue to provide space and solutions where people can come together to celebrate lives lived, be comforted by shared memories and supported by family and friends, in an environment that is safe for the public and our team. These unique times call for unique solutions and our counsellors are ready to help you with solutions that fit your needs.

To meet your needs we have done the following:

Implemented enhanced cleaning and disinfection procedures utilizing strong disinfectants and frequent application.

For everyone’s protection it is important that physical space be observed. Those attending visitations and services will be asked to sanitize their hands and share condolences but refrain from physical contact. Gatherings will be limited to no more than 10 people in the facility (including Minister or Priest) as outlined by government guidelines. Our directors can discuss with you how Ceremonies or Gathering may be digitally recorded or published both publicly or privately.

Those who may feel uncomfortable attending in person may send their condolences online or submit a video message for the family that will be collected for them to view.

To assist in your planning needs, our team will work with you in person, over the phone or electronically so that you feel most comfortable and safe.

COVID-19, according to organizations such as the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, Health Canada or Toronto Public Health, places no restrictions on whether a family may select Burial or Cremation services.

We will continue to monitor this situation very closely and will provide updates as needed.  Please stay informed through Health Canada or Toronto Public Health websites.

We appreciate the continued trust of our community.

Graeme & Erin Hogle, Allison Hogle-Dyck, and the Hogle Team
