Funeral Costs

FISO annually obtains quotations from funeral service providers in Ottawa. These providers are aware that we have more than three thousand members and it is with their full co-operation that we are able to provide a price list of services. We provide this information to members.

Membership is open to any person who is eighteen years of age or older and approves of and subscribes to the purposes and procedures of this Society. There is no charge for dependents under 18 years of age, who are automatically included. When dependents reach the age of 18, they are no longer included and should apply to join the Society on their own. A lifetime membership in the Funeral Information Society of Ottawa is $25 for one person or $35 per family.
