Due to the weather conditions and the frequent snow, ice and rain, the Cemetery will remain closed to visitors until our limited staff can make access and circulation to the site completely safe. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
We will be able to serve bereaved families who have an appointment for a crypt or mausoleum burial or cremation service. These families will be admitted through the main entrance of the Cemetery, on Côte-des-Neiges Boulevard. No interments in the grounds are possible at this time.
The current strike is reducing the number of staff available at the Cemetery. For more information, please see the news release. We hope that negotiations will lead to the renewal of the collective agreements as soon as possible. For more information, please read the press release.
We will inform you on this page when access to the cemetery can be provided in a safe manner. Thank you for your understanding.
