Alternatives™ Funeral & Cremation Services is a full service funeral provider, offering everything the family needs from simple cremation without a Service to a complete funeral and burial.
We're not a publicly owned and traded corporation. The difference between us and international funeral home chains lies in our approach to price, convenience and how we consider the needs of each family we serve.
Since our inception in 1992 under the name Personal Alternative® Funeral Services, we grew to become Western Canada's largest independently owned funeral home. With our network of likewise independently owned partner locations in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan, we serve more than 3,500 families annually.
Recognising that the marketplace and consumer trends have continued to change over the past 19 years, we determined that it was necessary to create new and innovative service categories to better meet those changing needs of the consumer of the 21st century.
In June 2011 we launched our new brand, Alternatives Funeral & Cremation Services.
