Effective January 16, 2016 the Bereavement Authority of Ontario (BAO) assumed responsibility for provisions of the Funeral, Burial and Cremation Services Act, 2002 that apply to cemetery and crematorium operators and salespersons. The BAO will carry out the functions previously provided by the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services’ Cemeteries and Crematoriums Regulation Unit (CCRU), except for activities related to cemetery closures, abandonments, burial sites and war graves. These activities will be retained by the ministry and the ministry will also continue to be responsible for legislation and regulations and oversight of the BAO.
