Who Are We?
A long cherished dream of IndoCanadian community became a reality on June 8th, 2002, when Riverside Funeral Home & Crematorium, a one of its kind facility in the North America began its operations.
The architecture & design of the building incorporates all -important features that go in making a most modern Funeral Home & Crematorium, which cater to the social and multicultural needs of the communities.
Riverside Funeral Home & Crematorium is operated by Five Rivers Community Services Society.
Building a project of such a magnitude by the Indo-Canadians is another milestone achieved by the hard working community in Canada. The community which first set foot on this land around a century back have made phenomenal achievements in less than a century. They have built large temples, where free kitchen runs 24 hours a day, built their schools, homes for senior, banks and now this large facility.
