My experience in the Funeral Industry has spanned across Ontario, Canada and Japan. I witnessed the evolution of the funeral industry, including shifts in beliefs and attitudes towards the traditional funeral. I saw the need to offer Celebration of Life planning outside the industry model that focuses on the joyous and positive life of our loved ones, beyond the grief ritual. I could see that grieving families needed more positive death experiences.
This led me to found Celebrations of Life Toronto in 2019, the first full-service Memorial Planning company in Toronto that combines the unique needs of the bereaved with the beauty of tasteful event planning.
