We encourage visitors to discover our cemeteries rich histories, witness the time-honoured ceremonies, take in the scenic landscapes and grounds, wander through the headstones and monuments, reflect on the names, and ponder their stories.

Cemetery locations

The City is responsible for the ownership and maintenance of 67 sites, varying in size from large municipal cemeteries to small family burial plots.

Many cemeteries now under the care of the City receive protection as a result of the Ontario Cemeteries Act which mandates a municipality to assume responsibility for any burial site that is not being maintained or is abandoned.
