Cancellation

Cancellation of a contract can be requested at any time for any reason.  You may cancel without charge or penalty at any time during the period from the day you enter into the contract until 30 days after you receive a copy of the contract.  If you cancel after 30 days you may still have to pay for interment space and for any cemetery supplies and services that have already been used, performed, or delivered.

To cancel a contract, you must give a notice of cancellation to the owner of the cemetery, columbarium or mausoleum at the address shown in the contract or to the seller of this contract at the address shown in the contract.  You should give notice of cancellation by a method that will allow you to prove that you gave notice, such as registered mail, fax and courier or by personal delivery.

Cancellation of Monument Contracts

If the cancellation of a monument contract is requested during the 30 day cancellation period, and the contract has not been paid in full, or signed approval has not been given, then a full refund will be issued. Additional fees may apply depending on the circumstances of the original sale and products and services already provided. 

If the monument has been ordered with the signed approval of the purchaser, and the contract paid in full, the monument is then considered final sale and is not eligible for a refund.

Transfer or Substitution of Pre-Paid (Pre-need) Products and Services

In the event a service or product is no longer offered or available, a similar product or service may be substituted at no additional charge, or the original purchase value will be refunded. 

In the event that a purchaser wishes to exchange one service type (ie. Open/Close Standard to an Open/Close Cremation) for another and the higher value item was pre-purchased at a lower price point than the lower value item’s current value and the refunding of the higher value item results in a refund with a variance equal or lower than the current administration fee, the exchange may be completed with a reduced administration fee.

Return of Interment Space and Services

The City of Edmonton does not allow the resale of interment space on the open market. If a return of interment space and/or services is desired, The City of Edmonton will repurchase unused (vacant) interment space and unused services (services not rendered) from the legal plot/niche owner. Any return of funds will only be given to the legal plot owner.

If the return is requested of interment space and/or services during the 30 day cancellation period, then a full refund will be issued. 

Any plot or niche for which the owner desires to return to the City of Edmonton after the 30 day cancellation period has lapsed is subject to a return fee of 15% of the market value at the time of return request.

Any niche or crypt for which the owner desires to return to the City of Edmonton after the 30 day cancellation period has lapsed is subject to these usage fee percentages retained from the current market value of the product at the time of return request. The credit remaining will be returned to the legal owner, less any applicable fees and costs to return the product to saleable condition.

Additional fees may apply depending on the circumstances of the original sale and products already provided. A Refund Processing fee for each interment space returned will also be levied. As per Canada Revenue Agency regulations, GST is not returned on interment space after the 30 day cancellation period. For returned services, the original GST amount paid is returned.

Percentage Usage Fee Retained From Niche or Crypt Current Market Value

  Niche or Crypt With Interment (Used) Niche or Crypt Without Interment (Vacant)
0-5 years 15% fee 15% fee
6-10 years 30% fee 15% fee
11-15 years 45% fee 15% fee
16-20 years 60% fee 15% fee
21+ years 75% fee 15% fee
