Death Certificates

A Funeral Director’s Statement of Death is often necessary before anything can be done.  This document can be obtained through a Funeral Director.  It is a good idea to obtain multiple copies as most agencies require an original and not a photocopy.

The Provincial Death Certificate is required by Land Titles to remove a deceased’s name from the title of the property. The most convenient way to order the provincial death certificate is through the department of Ehealth’s web portal at There you will find instructions on who is eligible to order the death certificate and the process to apply.
