Canadian Funerals Online was founded by Nicholas V. Ille in 2003. Today, Canadian Funerals is a family-run business devoted to providing informative funeral guidance for families and providing a directory of all funeral homes and crematoriums in Canada.
Nicholas is supported by his wife, Sara, who researches the death care industry and writes content for the website, along with his children, Andrew and Nicole, who manage much of the administration, marketing, and client & consumer support services.
In 2012, Nicholas and Sara established DFS Memorials LLC, a nationwide network of independent funeral homes specializing in offering low-cost direct cremation services to their communities.
The ethos of both Canadian Funerals and DFS Memorials is to foster transparency in the death care industry and help families access affordable funeral alternatives.
“We believe every family should be able to arrange a dignified funeral without going into debt or worrying about the costs. With that in mind, we endeavour to keep families informed of all the options that are available to them and educate consumers that funerals do not necessarily need to cost thousands of dollars.”
If you are a funeral consumer needing assistance, feel free to reach out to us, and we will try and assist you. If you are a funeral professional, who needs to update a funeral home listing, please submit your information to us.
