Alberta has implemented public health orders restricting mass gatherings to protect Albertans’ health and limit the spread of COVID-19.
A gathering is any event or assembling that brings people together in person, in a single room or single space, indoors or outdoors, at the same time.
Mandatory mass gathering restrictions No gatherings with more than 15 people are allowed, including:
FUNERALS, conferences, workshops, worship gatherings,
family events, such as weddings, social gatherings outdoors
Cancel gatherings with fewer than 15 people if the event:
*includes any attendees travelling from outside of Canada
*has, as its focus, attendees that are members of critical infrastructure or critical service roles (e.g. healthcare workers, first responders, electric/power workers, telecommunications)
*includes attendees from demographic groups at greater risk of severe disease, such as people 60 years of age or older and individuals with chronic medical conditions.
*Participation in activities that promote disease transmission (e.g. singing, cheering, close contact, sharing food or beverages, buffet style meals) is in a space that does not allow for recommended social distancing (at least 6 feet between attendees).
If you violate this public health order and proceed to hold an event with more than 15 attendees, you may be subject to a fine.
As communities around the world are struggling with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) we wanted to reassure you that the health and safety of our client families, employees and anyone entering into our funeral home is our first priority. At Mission View Funeral Chapel our staff are following strict hygiene protocol. We will continue to welcome anyone into our facility. However, if you have been out of the country or do not feel well we ask that you refrain from coming and call us instead. We will make every effort to accommodate your needs by phone and email. Following the guidelines of our association we will refrain from gatherings of more than 15 people. As to respect the needs of our client families we will continue to encourage funerals for close family members and invited guests. Anyone else wishing to attend a funeral can either call our office for family approval or are encouraged to express their sympathy online through our website, Facebook page or email. Through this difficult time we want to thank you in advance for your understanding and especially to the front-line healthcare workers who are working tirelessly on this effort.

Thanks for all the preperation and funeral servie for our Mom, grandmother and great grandmother. A lot of comments on the releasing of the balloons-grown up and kids all thought it was a great idea & everyone seemed to have their own thoughts about why the balloons all went up together towards the heaven. "It seemed like all the prayers said around the gravesite went up to heaven together"
Thanks so much for the candlelight service. It was nice to be with others that have suffered losses of loved ones. It was a touching service that I'll never forget. Thanks so much for your kindness & compassion during the loss of our loved one.
We want to express our heartfelt thanks for your help and understanding as we dealt with his death. We so appreciate your thoughtfullness in setting up a special place for us to say good-bye. You'll never know how much this meant to us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
I can't find enough words to express our thanks to you and Nola during our sad time, for making it so much easier on our family. Times like this are so much harder than we can know, until we experience loosing a parent. But your compassion made it so much easier to cope with. Your service can not be commended high enough.
Thank you very much for the wonderful work you do! It sure helped with the understanding of every step of the funeral planning, grieving process. We feel you two are another leg of our family.

On behalf of our entire family I would like to thank you most sincerely for your caring support and exceptional following the death of our mother. We are very grateful to you for your advice you provided to our family as well as the exceptional funeral services. Your professionalism is exemplary and your willingness to meet with us during Thanksgiving was especially appreciated. We were all so pleased to be able to give our dear Mother such a lovely farewell. Your kindness during our sadness will always be remembered with deepest gratitude.
I really appreciate everything you and Nola have done for our family. Grieving is a part of life, however, transitioning into terms of dealing with it, is a circumstance I am certain I will never completely comprehend, however, you and Nola have certainly assisted me in a more a positive transition and I thank you from the bottom of my heart! Your level of patience, understanding and professionalism is second to none, you made things more "comfortable"....thank you so, so much!
