Mount Pleasant

The Mount Pleasant Group (MPG) history stretches back to the early 19th Century, when Toronto was a small Victorian capital, known as the Town of York. Back then, only Anglicans and Roman Catholics could be buried in an “authorized” cemetery. Everyone else had to be buried outside the city. Then, in 1826, our first cemetery, Potter’s Field, was opened with the mission to accommodate all Toronto families, regardless of religion.

Nearly two centuries later, Toronto is a much different place, but our focus hasn’t changed. We’re still committed to providing our communities with choice, whether it’s natural burial, religious and cultural rituals and whatever it is that makes our clients feel welcome and at home. Today, we operate 10 cemeteries, nine funeral centres and four cremation centres across the Greater Toronto Area.
