  1. Determine if you are eligible

    All funeral directors in Yukon must be registered, hold a licence and renew it every year. It is illegal to work without an active licence.

    You are eligible to renew your licence if you currently hold a Yukon funeral director licence and complete steps 2-5 of this application process.

     

    Renewal period

    Funeral director licences expire annually on March 31. Submit your renewal application before February 28. This will ensure we can process your application before your licence expires.

  2. Complete the renewal application form

    Complete all sections of the renewal application form. Do not leave a section blank. You may enter “not applicable” when it is relevant. We may return incomplete applications.

  3. Provide all other supporting documents required

    You must also provide the following if you plan to offer prepaid or prearranged funerals.

    • Proof of bonding in the amount of $100,000.
    • Proof of a trust account at a certified bank located in Yukon.
