Published by Peaceful Transition Inc.

Peaceful Transition Inc. has been a part of Barrie and the surrounding community since 1995. In that time, we have grown to become an easy alternative to the traditional full-service funeral homes. We provide simple options for cremation and burial at a fraction of the cost. There are two types of funeral establishments governed by the Board of Funeral Service in Ontario, Full Service Funeral Homes and Transfer Services. While Peaceful Transition Inc. is classified as a Transfer Service, we provide almost all of the same services as a funeral home without the need of their involvement and at a much lower cost. We specialize in keeping things simple which means no extras or added costs and personalized care, respect and service for both the deceased and your family. Our purpose is not to pressure you into purchases that you don’t require.
