Speaker | Lyle Burkell | Saskatoon Funeral Home

Saskatoon Funeral Home has been a business since 1910. They have several funeral homes in Saskatchewan and also the Prairie View Chapel crematorium.

Lyle mentioned that the funeral services industry has gone through a lot of changes over the last several years. Large corporations are buying homes. There are new companies offering low cost - low service products. Another change relates to globalization of the family everywhere. Prepaid funerals are now more common than they were 10 years ago since families are spread over greater distances and people recognize that they must pre-plan a certain part of their own inevitable funeral. Cremations are more popular than they were years ago for various reasons including the fact that costs are lower and they are more environmentally friendly.

Thanks to Lyle for speaking to us on such short notice.
