Renewal period

The renewal period begins February 1. Apply for your renewal by March 1. This ensures we can process your licence before it expires on March 31.

It's illegal to do business or work in the new licence year before we've renewed your licence.

Processing time

We typically review applications within 30 business days. We'll confirm you've met all the legal requirements before we issue your licence.

We cannot process your application if you have not provided us with all the documentation we need.

You’re eligible to renew a funeral director licence if you hold a current funeral director licence for the Yukon.

Additional documents

If you plan to offer prepaid or prearranged funerals you must also provide the following when you renew online.

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

The portal gives more information on how to submit these documents.
