Oliver’s Funeral Home provides the families who entrust their loved one's funeral arrangements to our care with a package that contains important documents required to apply for Canada Pension Plan Benefits. This package will either be given to you in the Oliver’s Funeral Chapel folder case the day of the funeral arrangement or, if you are meeting with an After Care Counsellor, during your scheduled appointment.

If you cannot locate it or require an additional information package, please contact us. If you wish to obtain the information online, the links above under forms will guide you to the relevant page on Canada Pension Plan's website.

When making your inquiry, you may be required to provide the following information/documents:

  • Funeral Director’s Statement of Death (obtained from Oliver's Funeral Home)
  • Deceased's birth certificate
  • Birth certificate of person(s) making the application
  • Marriage certificate (if applicable)
  • Proof that the deceased contributed to the Canada Pension Plan (e.g., pay stubs; T4 slips)

Oliver’s Funeral Home strongly encourages you to contact Canada Pension Plan directly concerning the information and documents required for your own particular circumstances.

If you need assistance with any of these forms or have questions please contact me at 780.532.2929  or email

We will help ensure all government benefits are taken care of, swiftly and gently.

That is our promise to you.
