The journey of Funeral Support Services Organization hereinafter will be referred as “FSSO” started on 1st December, 2014 when, with the sole objective of serving Muslim Community and providing them funeral financial support services in the province of Ontario, the organization of FSSO was established with the kind support of few very dedicated Muslim brothers. The aim was to relieve members of Muslim community from the burden of excessive funeral cost ranging from $5,000 to $7,000. In the past we have observed few examples where some Muslim Brothers and Sisters were asking help and donation in Masjids and from community members to cover the funeral cost of their loved ones who passed away as they were unable to bear the same. This situation was an eye opener and wake up call for every Muslim brothers and sisters which lead us to create this organization.

Following the set procedure of Federal and Provincial Government FSSO was established on 1st December 2014 and registered under Ontario Corporation Registration #1926261 and Revenue Canada Agency BN #820447589.
