At E.J. Coutu, times have changed but our commitment to service and excellence has not.  Founded by Philippe Coutu Senior in 1895, four generations of the Coutu family have dedicated themselves to the community we serve.  Our exceptional staff has more than 100 years of combined experience and can adapt to any special requirements your family has.  Our company mandate is to ensure professional dedicated service to honour your loved one at a fair and reasonable price. We are a family owned funeral home with a 125 year history of serving the community.We do not employ commissioned sales people, and have no quotas to meet. We will help you plan a funeral that works for your family, NOT sell you one. We believe in the value of funerals and that they are important, but believe they should be affordable. Our prices are nearly half the price of corporate funeral homes, without compromising service. Interest free payment plans are available on pre-arranged funerals.

We believe excellent and personalized service, along with attention to detail, add value to a funeral, not merchandise. We serve all cemeteries in the Province of Manitoba. It is only natural to want a funeral home that can offer excellent service, and match it with an excellent price. We are proud to say that over the last 125 years we have been that funeral home, and will continue to be for decades to come.

**When arranging or prearranging a funeral, always deal with a licensed funeral director. Their knowledge and experience will help you and your family properly plan a meaningful funeral.

Edward J. Coutu Jr.
Owner, Licensed Funeral Director

for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.
