Chilliwack Cemeteries is one of the oldest, continuously operating private cemeteries in British Columbia. Set on top of Mount Shannon, the 16.87 acres cemetery offers a sweeping view of the Fraser Valley. With over 2,000 available burial plots, and virtually unlimited niche walls, the options for maintaining or scattering cremated remains is extensive.
Recent trends indicate a high percentage of internments favor cremation. Chilliwack Cemeteries has a proven track record for providing niche walls and columnbariums, offering unique, special places for families and friends to visit and remember their loved ones.
Included in the share purchase is a Perpetual Care Fund, which currently is valued at over $1.7 million. Interest from this fund is directly paid to the business for the purpose of maintaining the cemetary grounds. Due to historically low interest rates, there exists today an excess of $500,000 unrealized care income owed to the company by the Perpetual Care Fund.
