Religious Customs

Religious Groups

Canada, with its rich ethic background, has many different religions and beliefs.

Each religion has its own set of practices and traditions. While some impose few restrictions, others have many strict rules that must be followed. The same is true of their funeral and burial customs.

In addition to the traditional Christian religious groups such as the Protestants and Roman Catholics, funeral directors must also be familiar with the practices and customs of many other religious faiths. Some of the more well known include Buddhism, Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Baha’i and Sikh.
