Funeral Board of Manitoba


The Funeral Board of Manitoba consists of a Chair, designated by a Provincial Minister, and five other persons of whom two are licensed funeral directors. The lieutenant Governor in Council appoints all members.

The Funeral Board of Manitoba is committed to enhancing funeral and cemetery services within a fair, ethical and transparent marketplace.

The Board was established as a not-for-profit regulatory organization to strengthen consumer protection in Manitoba. The Board administers The Funeral Directors and Embalmers Act, The Cemeteries Act, and The Prearranged Funeral Services Act.

Through its website and inquiry line, it provides consumers with information regarding their legal rights, including which products and services are required by law and which are optional.
