For Funeral Professionals
Funeral Directors are appointed Division Registrars of Death under the Vital Statistics Act. As Division Registrars, they assume the responsibility for certain activities when someone dies and is entrusted to their care. For example, the Funeral Director is responsible to obtain a Medical Certificate of Death and to collect personal information to complete the Death Registration form and issue a Burial Permit.
Division Registrator for Death must hold a valid Funeral Directors License issued by the Nova Scotia Board of Registration of Embalmers and Funeral Directors and approved by the N.S. Deputy Registrar General for Vital Statistics.
