Following recent developments on the global COVID-19 pandemic, Magnus Poirier wishes to inform you of the measures taken to ensure the safety of our employees, our customers and their families. We will continue to offer our customers the highest quality service while complying with the health recommendations issued by all levels of government.

Please note that our services will be maintained as we work to ensure everyone’s safety. To assist you in planning a funeral, we are open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. every day. Private and intimate funerals will be requested to comply with the public health authorities’ directives, as a very limited number of visitors are allowed. Please contact us to discuss your needs with one of our advisors before coming in person.

We are counting on your vigilance—if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, we request that you refrain from entering our premises. Contact us and we will assist you with your needs.

If you would like to show your sympathy to a loved one, there’s no need to travel: use the condolence message feature under the Obituaries tab.

More than ever, Magnus Poirier is accompanying its customers with attentive listening, human warmth and respect. We are aware that, for our customers, the ordeal of mourning is made even more difficult by the worries and constraints of the current situation. Under the circumstances, we are doing everything we can to lighten this burden.

Our hearts go out to you! Thank you for your trust, and take care of yourself.

For more information about our operations and our sanitary measures during this time of crisis, call us at 514-727-2847 or toll-free at 1 888-727-2847, or write to us.
