Updates

Work is scheduled to begin in early October 2017 to complete upgrades providing for an expanded range of options in spring 2018.

Planned Upgrades & Improvements

In August 2017, following a public consultation process, Delta Council approved the implementation of a service expansion strategy for both the North Delta and Boundary Bay cemeteries intended to: 

  • Provide increased capacity of existing interment services
    • In-ground burial lots and cremation lots
  • Provide additional interment services
    • Columbaria and memorial wall niches, and scattering gardens
  • Enhance the visual appearance of the cemetery grounds 

Consultation Phases

  • April 2016: Community Information Sessions were held at the North Delta and Boundary Bay cemeteries to give residents the opportunity to review the concept designs for the future of those cemeteries. 
  • June 2015: Through an Open House format, the conceptual designs were made available both on-site and on Delta’s website for the public to review. Community feedback and input was gathered at the Open Houses and also through an online survey. Based on the feedback/input gathered, the designs and associated information was provided to Council. The designs were amended where appropriate based on the feedback received.
  • 2014: Staff were authorized to secure detailed design and cost estimates for improvements at Boundary Bay and North Delta cemeteries. Conceptual designs were prepared and reviewed by staff.
