Community Involvement

To the Edwards Family and Saskatoon Funeral Home, business and community are intertwined. It has always meant a real commitment to the betterment of the community and its people on an economic, spiritual and social level.

It involves personal volunteerism by ownership, management and staff; financial and in-kind contributions to local projects; promotion of civic pride; and whenever possible supporting local business. Giving back to the community is a value with deep roots in this organization. The company has received both the ABEX and SABEX Community Involvement Awards.
