CANA Code of Cremation Practice

In the practice of cremation, we believe:
  • In dignity and respect in the care of the deceased, in compassion for the living who survive them, and in the memorialization of life;
  • That a Cremation Authority should be responsible for creating and maintaining an atmosphere of respect at all times;
  • That the greatest care should be taken in the appointment of crematory staff members, any of whom must not, by conduct or demeanor, bring the crematory or cremation into disrepute;
  • That cremation should be considered as preparation for memorialization; and
  • That the dead of our society should be memorialized through a commemorative means suitable to the survivors.
