Update Re Memorial Societies Closures

The Memorial Society of British Columbia (MSBC) was established in 1956, helping members access simple, affordable and dignified funerals for over 65 years.

We learned recently of the closures of the People’s Memorial Society of BC and the Vancouver Island Memorial Society, effective November 1st, 2022. These two organizations are independent and separate from the MSBC.

While People’s and Vancouver Island Memorial Society memberships will be honoured by their contracted funeral providers, you can become a member of MSBC for access to our contracted funeral providers at the reduced membership rate we normally charge for the transfer from memorial societies in other provinces.

For more information, we invite you to contact us. Please call our office at 1-888-816-5902, Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm
