Our Commitment To You


In light of the new Ontario regulations, our Northwood team is happy to announce more flexibility in the services we are able to provide.

While abiding by all safety regulations in capacity, social distancing and sanitization measures we will now be able to accommodate up to 40 guests at one time in our facilities for visitations, services, and celebrations of life.

This will also allow families the opportunity to invite the public to attend a visitation period if they wish. For families who choose to have this option, all details will be provided to the public in the death announcement which will be located on our funeral home website or on the many local online outlets that publish obituaries. 

The province has also allowed outdoor funerals and services held on cemetery property to have a maximum of 100 attendees.

While things are not quite back to “normal”, we are happy to welcome our community back into our home and allow families the opportunity to honour their loved one.

We will be taking all measures to ensure the safety of the families we serve and our community. If you have any questions regarding the new regulations or safety measures please do not hesitate to reach out. Our team is here to assist you every step of the way, 705-945-7758 or info@northwoodfuneral.com

Stay safe,
Your friends at Northwood





A Moment In Time

What are we - all but a moment in time? A moment shared with a parent, a child, a loved one, a friend. And when our moment is gone - what then? We may not go down in history books with amazing achievements, although some will. For most of us, if we are fortunate, we will be resurrected in the memories of those we leave behind. Stories will be shared, smiles and laughter will abound and yes, there will be tears. But in another moment in time, the pain will lessen and the space we leave behind will be filled with love. This is our gift...a moment in time.
