Slope Stabilization Project

July 2021 – Summer 2022

St. James’ Cemetery & Crematorium is undertaking a slope stabilization project this coming July. Due to increasing concerns with slope failure, the project will require the disinterment and relocation of remains within the same area of the Cemetery. The cremated remains of approximately 500 individuals three meters from the edge of the top of bank will be affected.

The application has been approved by the Bereavement Authority of Ontario (BAO) for the disinterment of the cremated remains, and disinterment commences June 2021.

Notices have been posted onsite. Please rest assured that remains will be held in a safe, locked location onsite until they are scheduled to be reinterred within the cemetery summer 2022.

For further information, please contact the cemetery office at 416-964-9194.
