UPDATE ON COVID-19

(As April 18, 2021)

Dear Friends,

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, please know that we are committed to the health and well-being of our families, guests, staff and community.

We at the Sifton Funeral Home continue to monitor directives from Health Canada, the Province of Ontario, the Bereavement Authority of Ontario (BAO), and the Southwestern Public Health Unit in order to keep you protected, while ensuring you and your family receive the level of service expected of our firm.

Note:  Effective April 19, 2021, as per the directive of the Bereavement Authority of Ontario (BAO), funeral services and visitations inside all funeral establishments, places of worship or any other indoor or outdoor setting (including graveside services) are limited to a maximum of 10 guests, while maintaining two-metre physical distancing between attendees.  No food or drinks are allowed.  Attendance must be scheduled by appointment only, as well as screening and logging of guests.  People may be asked to remain in their vehicles until permitted to enter the facilities, as the BAO does not permit congregating in a parking lot outside of vehicles. Also, the BAO currently states that properly wearing masks or face coverings is mandatory for all persons (funeral staff and attendees) inside all funeral establishments or any other indoor or outdoor setting where a funeral or visitation is held.  

Be assured that we are, as always, available 24/7 to help you through difficult times following the death of a loved one. We can assist with arrangements by phone and email should you prefer to stay in your own home. 

We will continue to celebrate and honour the lives of those we are privileged to serve.

We continue to encourage friends and family to express their condolences through our website and we will ensure these are shared and provided to family members.

Your understanding, cooperation and patience is very much appreciated.

Sincerely,

Brent Sifton & Family



Barrier-free accessibility

The Sifton Funeral Home Limited is proud to announce our new accessibility ramp, providing barrier-free access.

This project has been funded in part by the Government of Canada's Enabling Accessibility Fund, and enables full accessibility for seniors and those individuals with physical disabilities.

"An accessible community is an inclusive community.  By removing barriers, we're making it easier for people with disabilities to fully participate in their communities," said Brent Sifton, President and Managing Director of the Sifton Funeral Home. "Our philosophy of funeral service is the same today as it was when my grandfather founded the firm in 1926 - to serve others as we ourselves would wish to be served.  That's the Golden Rule."
