On July 27, 2017, the Registrar, Funeral Burial and Cremation Services Act, 2002 (FBCSA) issued a Notice of Proposal to Revoke the Funeral Director (Class 1) licence of Mr. Brent Trudell. Mr. Trudell’s past conduct is believed to be inconsistent with the intention and objective of the FBCSA and therefore disentitles him to licensure under the Act.
The Proposal to Revoke has been carried out and Mr. Trudell is now prohibited from selling, offering to sell or providing any licensed supplies and services as defined in the FBCSA. All FBCSA operators, including funeral establishments, are respectfully reminded that section 9(1) of the Act creates a positive obligation to ensure that their licensees and other staff comply with the FBCSA and its regulation. As such, no operator is to engage, or represent that Mr. Trudell can be engaged, in any activities for which an FBCSA licence is required.
Any questions in respect to this matter should be directed to the Bereavement Authority of Ontario at: 647-483-2645 or toll free at 1-844-493-6356.
