Nova Scotia funeral home to soon start selling alcohol during visitations - Nova News NowFriday, January 06, 2017
METRO HALIFAX - A funeral home in Dartmouth will soon become the first in the province to give those grieving the loss of a loved one the chance to do so with a drink.
Atlantic Funeral Homes’ Main Street location was granted a liquor licence in April, and has plans to start serving booze at visitations in July.
“Everyone always talks about the old Irish wakes,” general manager Mark Hooftman said June 15
“When you’re celebrating a life, the celebration could be many things to different people, and for some people it could mean alcohol.”
Hooftman says the company was getting requests from many of its customers for alcohol at visitations. That meant applying for a special occasion licence every time someone wanted to toast a dead relative with, for example, a bottle of the dearly departed’s favourite whiskey.
There is no liquor licence for funeral homes, per sé, but Hooftman says he applied for a licence with the province’s Liquor Control Board anyway, and they made what he calls a “groundbreaking” exception.

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...
