In Canada, the regulatory control of funeral homes and licensed professionals comes under jurisdiction of the Provincial Government. In this Province, the funeral profession is regulated under Legislation entitled, "The Embalmers and Funeral Directors Act Chapter 144 of the Revised Statutes, 1989".
The responsibility for ensuring the provisions of this Act rests with Service Nova Scotia and its Minister. However, the actual adminstration of the Act is undertaken by a duly constituted Board of Registration of Embalmers and Funeral Directors, consisting of the Registrar and five other people. Of these individuals, three are licensed embalmers who are appointed by the Governor in Council, and two are elected by the Funeral Service Association of Nova Scotia of which one is a Consumer Advocate.
