License # 3311090 - The City of Vaughan owns and operates various cemeteries within city borders, many of which are pioneer cemeteries dating back to the early 1800’s. To meet the needs of families, the City of Vaughan offers a full range of interment choices for ground and cremation burials. All entombments are carried out in a professional, orderly and respectful manner.

Cemetery By-law 144-2022 
The City’s original cemetery by-law was enacted in 1992. In June 2022, Council endorsed a revised by-law – Cemetery By-law 144-2022 (PDF) – to ensure the City, as a cemetery operator, meets the current regulations under the Funeral, Burial and Cremation Services Act, 2002 (FBCSA). In July 2022, the City submitted Cemetery By-law 144-2022 to the registrar of the FBCSA for approval.
