About Newfoundland and Labrador Legislation

The funeral profession is not unlike any other profession. All licensed funeral directors and embalmers are governed by a professional code of ethics, and across North America, there are various federal, provincial, and state regulations and legislation to which the funeral industry must adhere. 

Though there is understandably some overlap in these legislations, individual regions and governing agencies introduce legislation to best suit the needs of their people and training and certifications available. It’s thus important for those in the funeral industry to be intimately familiar with the ever-changing legislation of their region.

In Newfoundland and Labrador, what does the legislation surrounding the funeral industry look like? 

This course will provide an in-depth review of the policies, practices, and legislative requirements that exist in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

    Geoff Carnell

    Geoff Carnell entered the funeral profession quite suddenly. After his father died unexpectedly in 1987, Geoff went to their family-owned funeral home to plan his father’s funeral as the new owner. He was 34 and the 6th generation in the family business. As a Professional Engineer, he was able to bring a different perspective to the funeral home profession. Since becoming the full-time president of Carnell’s Funeral Home Ltd. in 1988, he has installed a crematorium, created showrooms for caskets and cremation options, reconfigured and enlarged the on-site chapel, developed a passion for writing about the profession, and published two books: “When the Sun Sets, A guide to Funeral Planning” for a Canadian audience and “The Complete Guide to Funeral Planning, How to Arrange the Appropriate Funeral,” for the American public.
