Message to the public about Covid-19 on our website

In response to the preventive measures established by Public Health to limit the spread of COVID-19, Maison Trudel has swiftly implemented procedures to comply with the guidelines while answering the needs of grieving families who wish to honour the memory of deceased loved ones.

Funeral rituals are unique events that hold great importance in the grieving process. In this light, we continue to offer responsible services focused on respect and dignity.

Each request is unique. We are required to host private events and adopt safe practices. We also respect family wishes to postpone rituals to a later date.

We realize that this is an extraordinary situation and we are committed to providing you with proper guidance and support despite the circumstances.
