About Us

Focused on Your Needs

Who We Are and What We Do

Proudly serving the Thunder Bay area since 1997, Harbourview Funeral Centre will help you customize your arrangements, while respecting your faith, taste and budget. You can feel confident putting your trust in our compassionate professionals.

Harbourview features a wide range of amenities, from our comforting coffee room with a cozy fireplace and superb view of Lake Superior, to our large reception hall featuring in-house catering. Our spacious chapel will comfortably seat 180 people in the pews, yet is arranged in way so that if it is a smaller service, the chapel doesn’t feel empty. For larger gatherings, several overflow rooms are available, with close circuit plasma TV to view the service.

We are proud to be a part of this community. Our helpful, dedicated staff are passionate about supporting families, local associations, religious organizations and cultural groups, and we are honoured to host a series of free memorial events throughout the year.
