What is a funeral co-op?

At Arimathea Funeral Cooperative we offer full funeral services. We are set up under provincial co-op guidelines and operate under provincial funeral home regulations in consultation with our Board of Directors. Our Board is elected annually by our shareholders (members). We are proud to be the only cooperative of our kind in mainland Nova Scotia.
