Notice to Managers: Reminder – Submit your establishment ALRs
— It’s time to submit your Funeral Establishment and
Transfer Service Annual Licensure Report
The BAO reminds managers who have not yet submitted their required Annual Licensure Report (ALR) – for Funeral Establishments and Transfer Services – to do so very soon.
Funeral Establishment Operator (Class 1 and 2) and Transfer Service Operator (Class 1 and 2) ALRs are due by Dec. 31, 2021.
If you have already — thank you.
Note to those who manage
more than one location:
- When you are logged in to the renewal portal, if you don’t see the renewal forms for all of the locations you manage, please request a copy of the missing ALR forms by emailing Licensing@TheBAO.ca.
- Please be sure to include your establishment licence number in your email to us.
