Funeral Home Accused of Cutting Corners

Ontario’s Board of Funeral Services alleges Benisasia Funeral Home cut corners while embalming nearly 400 bodies.

A funeral parlour in the GTA has come under fire for allegedly cutting corners while embalming hundreds of bodies according to a report in the Toronto Star.

The Ontario Board of Funeral Services alleges the Benisasia Funeral Home used far less than the required amount of chemicals needed to properly embalm bodies, causing fluids to leak from the deceased as families attended visitations. 

The board also alleges that the owners owe money to coroners and misled investigators about where cremated remains were being kept.

The Ontario Board of Funeral Services has agreed to lifts its suspension of the company’s Toronto and Mississauga funeral homes pending a tribunal ruling on pulling its license. 

The two funeral homes will only be allowed to reopen under the condition that it is managed by a person of the board’s choosing.
