As highlighted in the Auditor General's Report, funeral-selling practices can still include "pressure tactics and the provision of misleading information". Costs for direct cremation services vary significantly, from a low of $512 in Windsor to a high of $8,000 in Toronto.
That's why we started Eirene - to bring affordability, simplicity and transparency to the industry. We provide high-quality cremation services at a reasonable cost and ensure your arrangement process is dignified and supportive [without pressure].
By offering simple packages that can be arranged online or over the phone, we also don't carry the same overhead that funeral homes do. We don't have any physical locations or fancy vehicles, which means we can pass on those savings to our families.
Rest assured, we are still licensed through the Bereavement Authority of Ontario and use the same crematoriums and transfer services that other funeral homes do.
