Memorial Society of British Columbia

The Memorial Society of British Columbia® (MSBC) is a non-profit organization formed in 1956. We are a completely objective source of education and information regarding the planning of funeral services. We are not a funeral home.

Our dedicated board members are not associated in any way with an independent or corporate funeral home. Our independence offers to you, our members, clear and accurate information regarding the many choices you need to make when death does come knocking.

As a member of MSBC, you can plan your farewell with the confidence that you have involved the largest consumer advocacy group in B.C. protecting your interests when it is time to make funeral arrangements. Membership gives you both peace of mind and the assurance that your final wishes will be fulfilled. Importantly, membership helps reduce stress for your family at their time of need. Our staff are on your side.
