Different funerals

FSEV offers a different kind of funeral, one that is more current and vibrant whether it is humanistic, spiritual, or religious.

Celebrating a funeral with FSEV is like writing the book of the missing person’s life. It is also giving dying a meaning. Helping the surviving ones remember the good moments in the deceased’s life, their talents, qualities and particular interests. It is also allowing relatives and friends to gather and pay tribute to the deceased, to keep an enduring memory and to finally light up the trail that they left. It is giving a meaning to their departure as well as helping the grief-stricken ones.



Funerals are usually celebrated in a funeral home. However, this traditional option is available, what makes us different is the variety of other options we offer relatives and friends to celebrate their loved one in a setting that reflects their personality:

– Golf clubs
– Reception halls
– At home
– Through nature
– Nursing home
– Church
– Favorite restaurant
– Any other significant location

Our funeral celebrations are made with great insight, filled with respect and dignity.

Celebrations can feature human and/or spiritual arrangements, in an open perspective towards future and hope.

Who is it intended for?

We welcome all beliefs and denominations. Our services are intended for anyone who wishes to celebrate the life of beloved ones in an exceptional and personalized manner.


Our services:

  • The creation of a personalized, alive, unifying ceremony, tinted with sensitivity and genuineness in your preferred official language and/or in both languages.
  • Choice of the type of celebration: spiritual, humanist or sacred.
  • Great musical choice (included in the fees).
  • Great choice of rituals (included in the fees).
  • Relatives, children and friends are welcome to partake in the rituals preparation during the ceremony.
  • A ritual at the burial site or at the columbarium.
  • After cremation, the funeral rituals can take place in the funeral home or at any other location of your choice.
  • Funeral arrangements by an experienced officiant

The first step is to understand the family’s wishes, then to put everything together to mark this moment. If circumstances allow, our officiants will give everyone the opportunity to express themselves, ensuring their messages are being listened to.

About us

All of our FSEV officiants have been trained to suggest various approaches to a funeral, taking all of these realities into account.  They understand each life is unique, that faith and love are instilled at birth, and that every life story is based on passions and beliefs 

Any questions? We are here to help!

Feel free to communicate with one of our officiants for more details.

Your service was outstanding! Without knowing my father, you paid him a tribute that came from the heart. I only got good comments on you.”

“My mother, my brother and I thank you for the beautiful ceremony in honour of my father. It was as we have envisioned it, simple in his image.”
- Chantal
“Words are not strong enough to thank you. Our daughter’s farewell celebration was unique and in her image, as promised. You have made sense of her departure. Our whole family and friends were touched although enchanted by the authenticity of the rituals. You were able to ease our sorrow by sharing a message of hope that will allow us to continue without her … many thanks.”
- Danielle & Sébastien
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for finding the right words at our mother’s funeral. The celebration was perfect and you allowed Madeleine to be surrounded by love and joy, as she always wanted. ”
- The Côté family
“We celebrated my father's funeral today. We had Mr. Sylvain l'Heureux as celebrant and we could not be more satisfied. With my many requests, Ms. Proulx told me that she had, according to her, the perfect person to accompany us and she was not wrong. Mr. L'Heureux was very understanding when faced with our multiple requirements. He gave us good advice during our introductory meeting and made this day a little less difficult to get through.

So thank you to Mrs. Proulx for this good reference and thank you to Mr. L'Heureux for making this funeral a great moment.“
