Our century-old funeral home

Our funeral home in the heart of Saint-Sauveur, on Saint-Vallier Street West, is a warm and welcoming place to plan a memorial. It has an on-site chapel, spacious visitation rooms and a reception area. This location of Complexe funéraire Sylvio Marceau is also home to our intimate columbarium.

For those who choose cremation, Complexe funéraire Sylvio Marceau has its own crematorium, operated at standards that exceed those of the Cremation Association of North America.

We celebrate life

At Complexe funéraire Sylvio Marceau, we understand that losing a loved one is a difficult emotional experience, we also know that every life is unique and every family is different. That's why we take the time to ask questions—How did your loved one live his or her life? What did that person love the most? What made them laugh?—and learn about the individual before helping plan a service.

Whether you are seeking a basic cremation with a scattering, a full traditional funeral service with a cemetery burial and a coffee-and-dessert reception, or a creative outdoor celebration complete with live music, themed decor, favorite foods and personalized mementos, we take care of every detail.


Here for you

For your convenience, we have additional funeral home locations in Charlesbourg, serving people in the north area of the city, from Lac-Beauport to Stoneham; and in L’Ancienne-Lorette, on Notre-Dame Street, a few steps away from the church Notre-Dame-de-l'Annonciation.

As a member of the Dignity Memorial® network, Complexe funéraire Sylvio Marceau gives you not only the familiar attention you expect from a locally operated funeral home but also the value you deserve.

Please contact us if you need immediate assistance or would like more information on how our team can help your family celebrate a life.


In 1908, Sylvio Marceau founded his funeral company in Quebec City’s Saint-Sauveur district. A savvy and hard-working business person, he prioritized building enduring relationships with families in need, and his company flourished.

Sylvio died in the early 1940s, and Wilfrid Dubois, who owned another funeral home in Saint-Sauveur, on Durocher Street, took over the company. Wilfrid operated both funeral homes until Joseph-Honoré Bureau bought them in 1953.

Joseph-Honoré consolidated and then grew the business under the well-known and much-respected Sylvio Marceau name. He closed the Durocher Street location and opened funeral homes on Marie-de-L’Incarnation Street and Notre-Dame Street in L’Ancienne-Lorette, which was his hometown.

When Joseph-Honoré died in 1976, Claude Bureau took over his father’s company. Later, Claude’s son joined Complexes funéraires Sylvio Marceau as well.

In 1997, Complexes funéraire Sylvio Marceau became part of the Dignity Memorial network, the largest group of licensed funeral service providers in North America. A year later, the company added a new funeral home in Charlesbourg, as well as a crematorium.

Today, nearly 100 years later, Sylvio Marceau Funeral Homes, with 3 locations, continues to be a trustworthy, compassionate resource for funeral and cremation services for the residents of Quebec.
