Death is a difficult thing to think about. Most people like to avoid the subject and are not prepared for the expenses when a loved one dies. Since most people will have little or no experience in making funeral arrangements, many are not aware of the choices that are available.
Nova Scotia has laws to protect people who are buying funeral services. These laws prohibit funeral directors or sales agents from contacting consumers directly by telephone or through door to door sales. This protects consumers from unwanted pressure at the time of a death in the family. Even during difficult times, it is important to know and use your rights as a consumer.
