CONSTRUCTION STARTS ON A NEW MAUSOLEUM
Work on phase 13, the addition of a new section onto the Porta del Paradiso Mausoleum, is proceeding very smoothly. The mausoleum is located in a charming natural setting with two rainwater-fed ponds that supply the irrigation system for a large part of the landscaping. This new construction uses geothermal energy, a first in Quebec, in keeping with our environmental commitment. Modern in design, innovative and in harmony with the environment, this building meets families’ needs and continues the evolution, mission and continuity of the Laval Cemetery and these meaningful places for future generations.

HOLIDAY'S WITHOUT YOU
This year, the person who was so dear to your heart will not be with you to celebrate the holiday season. But, you’re probably not in a mood to celebrate. It’s normal to dread this time: “The holiday season definitely stirs painful emotions, especially if work was keeping our mind busy. Perhaps you might want to respect certain traditions as a way to remember the deceased or you might instead wish to get rid of these rituals to give an entirely new meaning to this season.” What’s for sure, it will not be the same. Here are some suggestions that should hopefully help you through this time.
The Laval and Les Sentiers de Prévost Cemeteries as well as Magnus Poirier invite you to remember those that have crossed our paths, sometimes for many years and that often in the prime of their lives that have left this earth prematurely.
Do you need to repatriate a loved one to Canada, the United States, Europe, Asia or anywhere else in the world? The knowledgeable consultants at Magnus Poirier will take care of it for you.
« Vous êtes accueillants, à l’écoute et offrez même du soutien afin de mieux vivre notre deuil… Merci encore pour votre belle énergie, pour le service et l’attention que vous m’avez offerts. Tout cela vous sera remis un jour ou l’autre… Comme le diction le dit si bien, on récolte ce que l’on sème. »
