The Alberta Funeral Services Regulatory Board was established on December 1, 1992 under the Licensing of Trades and Businesses Act and the Funeral Services Business Licensing Regulation.
The Funeral Services Act and Regulations, passed in the 1998 spring sitting of legislature, came into effect December 1st, 1998. This clarifies, updates and combines some of the existing sections of the Licensing of Trades and Businesses Act and the Prearranged Funeral Services Act.
These changes in legislation have increased the role of the Alberta Funeral Services Regulatory Board in the funeral service marketplace. The board licenses funeral businesses, crematories, funeral directors, embalmers and pre-need salespeople. The board also sets educational standards, monitors performance standards and investigates consumer complaints.
