Funeral insurance comes to Nova Scotia: What you need to know - CBC.caFriday, October 28, 2016
Sept. 1, offers more options and reduces red tape for funeral homes.
But it hasn't "reinvented the wheel," according to Adam Tipert, owner of Sweeney's Funeral Home in Bridgewater and chairman of the Nova Scotia Board of Registration of Embalmers and Funeral Directors.
"We've always had prefunded funerals in Nova Scotia with a trust company."
Funeral home trust vs funeral insurance
That allowed people to preplan their funeral and prepay funeral homes, either in full or installments. The money was placed in trust, guaranteed to cover funeral expenses and protected until the person died.
"All we're doing now is looking at the option of instead of funneling all those monies to a trust company we can now send it to an insurance company and they can look after the financial aspects of it," Tipert said.
Rodger Gregg, registrar of Cemetery and Funeral Services with Service Nova Scotia, said funeral insurance can mean more manageable payments "that can make it easier to afford a prearranged funeral."
In line with 6 other provinces
He said the change was made at the request of the funeral and insurance industries to bring Nova Scotia "in line with the rest of the country." Currently, B.C., Alberta, Ontario, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Quebec all allow it.
"It's a type of life insurance," according to Michael Smith, Nova Scotia district manager for Canada Purple Shield insurance. He said all insurance is based on risk.
"The older we are the greater chance we have of death," he said. "The younger we are the less cha...
No applicants yet for public seats on Nova Scotia funeral board - Cape Breton PostWednesday, March 27, 2019
SYDNEY, N.S. -
Anyone upset over what's happening in the funeral industry in Nova Scotia now has an opportunity to pull up a chair and do something about it.
For the first time, the Nova Scotia Board of Registration of Embalmers and Funeral Directors is offering two board seats to public advocates not connected to the funeral industry, measures taken following a bizarre and emotional mix up at a Nova Scotia funeral home last year.
"That way the public can get involved in enforcement actions when they need to be taken by the board as we'd have the consumer advocate perspective as well," said Rodger Gregg, registrar of cemetery and funeral services in Nova Scotia.
However, Gregg said, his concern is that no one has applied for the positions and the positions start in June.
"Right now, we haven't received any applicants for these positions," he said.
"For us it's a great opportunity for there now to be consumer representation on the board to represent the consumer's interest."
The board previously consisted of just the registrar and five othe...
