FCSCS NEWS & UPDATES
Decision of the Discipline Committee
Thank you for visiting the Funeral and Cremation Services Council of Saskatchewan (FCSCS) web site. Our site has been recently updated to provide better information to our consumers, licensees, owners and other stakeholders.
The Council was created through legislation passed by the Saskatchewan government on November 1, 2001. Our mandate is two fold: to serve and protect consumer interests when it comes to the purchase of funeral and cremation services; and to ensure that the funeral and cremation industry itself, maintains a high level of professionalism at all levels.
Council is comprised of six elected licensees and four publicly appointed members who meet regularly throughout the year. There are four standing Committees of Council: Legislative & Governance which administers the legislation, governance and policies of Council; Finance and Audit to manage financial operations and mitigate risk; Communications to inform consumers and members of the profession; and Education & Professional Development for the professional development of licensees. In addition, there are Investigation and Discipline Panels from which members are selected as required to oversee and evaluate complaints and determine appropriate actions.
The Superintendent of Funeral and Cremation Services, appointed by the Ministry of Justice, oversees the activities of the Council and also participates in its meetings. Administratively, the Registrar oversees all legislative and administrative operations for Council. The Resource and Compliance Officer serves to support licensees achieve compliance and makes regular visits to all funeral homes, crematoria and transfer services to inspect operations and ensure legislative compliance.We welcome your interest in the Council.
