Pre-Planning Arrangements 

Most people understand that life insurance is about peace of mind. The same is true of pre-planning your funeral, interment and memorial.

By taking care of the details today, you are giving your family a valuable gift—the knowledge that your funeral will perfectly reflect your wishes after you’ve gone.

What’s more, like life insurance, you’ll take the financial worry of planning final arrangements off the shoulders of your loved ones. By pre-paying, your family is also guaranteed that they will never be asked to pay more, regardless of inflation.    

Cemetery

Highland Park Cemetery is a tranquil retreat located on 120 acres in rural Kanata. Just five minutes from the Canadian Tire Centre, it offers a range of choices, from columbarium and private family estate lots to traditional upright and flat marker burial plots.

In addition to its tranquil rural setting, Highland Park boasts exquisite landscaping, including a pond, walking paths and a pagoda against the backdrop of the Gatineau Hills.

  • Highland Park offers a range of gravesite locations, each unique and offering a different character. Most graves and lots allow for either an upright memorial or a flat marker amidst tranquil settings. In addition to a range of affordable options, family lots are also available. We would be happy to discuss your needs. 

  • Cremations are now the preferred choice for most Canadian families planning a dignified, yet cost-effective memorial service. Cremation urns can be interred in a casket site or in our peaceful urn garden.

  • Our columbarium niches are spread throughout the cemetery. We can provide space for above ground entombment of cremation.

To enquire about any of these options and to learn about our flexible payment plans, please call 613-831-4600 or email us  at  info@highlandparkcemetery.ca to arrange an appointment with one of our family service counselors.

Funeral

Most people understand that life insurance is about peace of mind. The same is true of pre-planning your funeral arrangements.

By taking care of the details today, you are giving your family a valuable gift—the knowledge that your funeral will perfectly reflect your wishes after you’ve gone.

What’s more, like life insurance, you’ll take the financial worry of planning final arrangements off their shoulders. By pre-paying, your family is also guaranteed that they will never be asked to pay more, regardless of inflation.

  • Since planning a funeral isn’t something most families face often, the biggest step in pre-planning is knowing when to start.

    The answer is simple. It’s never too early to pre-plan, particularly when your final arrangements are part of astute financial planning. By making informed choices ahead of time, you can rest assured that, during a time of profound distress, your family is protected from difficult decisions.

  • Over decades of service, the Cole family and our staff have earned a reputation for offering the kind of compassionate care you’d expect from one family to another.

    Our expert staff can guide you through every aspect of the process, from choosing memorial stationery to deciding your preferences for caskets or urns. By discussing and paying for such things in advance, you ensure that your life will be remembered as you wish by loved ones after you are gone.

  • There are several ways to pre-pay for your final arrangements. Our options are flexible, too, and can be tailored to your budget.

    • Single, fully pre-paid payment
    • Deposit payment, accrued to growth and applied as a credit to prevailing funeral costs at the time of need
    • Monthly payments, with costs spread out over periods of one, three, five or ten years. Except for the one year plan, our payment options include protection during the payment period and at the completion of the plan. Through this service, we guarantee your arrangements will not be subject to future inflation.
