Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery

Located on the premises of Notre-Dame-des-Neiges cemetery, we have a close partnership with this cemetery considered to be one of the most prestigious in Canada. This partnership provides a smooth process for our families, allowing our families to worry less about making arrangements and more about being together during this difficult time.

Cremation services

We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our transparent pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

For those who wish for a more momentous memorial, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.

There are many options for cremation—and they're not all equal. Here's what you can expect when you choose us for your loved one's cremation:

  • Custody of care guaranteed. Our custody-of-care program helps safeguard the identification of your loved one from the time we bring them into our care until the time we return them to your family. We check, cross-check and check again, every step of the way.
  • Exclusive custody of your loved one. We use only crematories owned and operated by Dignity Memorial® providers or trusted partners. Once your loved one is in our custody or that of a trusted partner, they’re in our care until they’re returned to your family.
  • Licensed, certified, conscientious staff. All Dignity Memorial crematory operators are licensed and certified by Cremation Association of North America, or CANA. Only one person at a time is cremated, and the cremation chamber is thoroughly cleaned before the next person is cremated.

We are involved with different foundations. We also assist with fundraising events for different hospitals in the metropolitan area. We are also supporters of the Diabetes Association and the Canadian Cancer Society.

Personalizing services

At Centre funéraire Côte-des-Neiges, we create services around the passions and hobby of the person being honoured. Personalization can take many forms. It can be grand and elaborate or simple and elegant. For one boy, we discovered his love of Legos. We had “flower arrangements” made out of Legos. The reception room was filled with the boy’s actual Lego creations for friends and family to see. We also held services for a retired fireman. We arranged for a fire truck to be present, and the men he worked with arrived to the ceremony wearing their fireman uniforms. If you think you might be interested in a celebration of life, please reach out and we can explain all the ways we can personalize a service.


Front exterior building at Centre funéraire Côte-Des-Neiges Inc.We make the effort to make our funeral home accessible to everyone. In one sense, that means having a staff that’s equipped to serve people of all cultural and religious backgrounds.

In another sense, that means making it easy for people to get to our physical location. We have ample underground parking spaces, but for those who don’t drive, we have a bus stop right outside of our front entrance. We’re easily accessible by subway.

Once you arrive here, the building itself is very easy to explore and is wheelchair accessible on all 3 levels.


We first opened our doors in 1997. We were one of the first avant-gardist and multicultural funeral centres in Quebec, offering a place for the community to receive compassionate and professional care. From the beginning, the Centre funéraire Côte-des-Neiges has relentlessly worked to understand the needs and traditions of the different communities.

In recent years, we’ve renovated our reception rooms to be more welcoming and accommodating for our families. We’ve added elements like wood flooring, large TVs to display picture and video slideshows, improved lighting and added fireplaces. There also has been a lounge area added where families can enjoy coffee and tea while they discuss anything that might be coming up.

Notre-Dame-des-Neiges cemetery has a rich tradition of serving families since the 19th century. Notre-Dame-des-Neiges cemetery was founded in 1846. For nearly 200 years, this cemetery has been recognized by many as one of the most important cemeteries in Canada.
