Monuments

The City of Fort Saskatchewan requires a Monument Compliance Permit be obtained prior to purchasing a monument to ensure it complies with all the Cemetery's Bylaw requirements. It also protects the purchaser from purchasing the wrong type of monument. Once the Permit has been approved, you may then proceed with ordering your monument. Monument Compliance Permits can be obtained by contacting our office at 780-992-6248.
