 Messages of Condolence at Steeles Memorial Chapel may be made online. Please use the link provided for each family to send your message.
Information on this website is always up to date and posted immediately upon our completing; arrangements with the families.


NOTE ABOUT THE MAPPING FUNCTION:
We hope you will find the mapping function helpful. Clicking on the address line for the shiva will open Google maps to the address and can also provide driving instructions from that page.
We remind you that for safety's sake, please take care not to search the map while driving.
Please be advised that maps provided by Google do not follow the naming conventions that we in the GTA are familiar with. Google may only recognise "Thornhill" as being the area east of Yonge St and north of Steeles.
For areas west of Yonge and north of Steeles we try to provide the best search option we can while maintaining our normal place names. Google may recognise this area as "Vaughan" which is not the usual area we in the GTA associate that place name.
Add your message to the Steeles online personal condolence book.
Copies of the condolences are available to immediate family members on request.
