The implementation date for the Funeral Burial and Cremation Services Act, 2002 has now been established for July 1, 2012, as confirmed in the attached letter from Minister Gerretsen.
Your legislation committee will be conducting a thorough review of the Act and subsequent regulations by the first week of April. During this legislation retreat, government representatives will be invited to answer any questions that arise out of the review session.
Legislation training sessions will be scheduled to take place at several locations throughout the province, likely starting in late September or October. The timing of these sessions will ensure you have plenty of time to put any changes in place before the enforcement date.
