"This unique location will make it possible to fully realize our approach, namely that there is not, that there should not be a funeral like any other, regardless of the budget of our clients."

- Jacques Poirier, President and CEO, Magnus Poirier


Welcome to the new 440 funeral home in Laval, which will be opening in fall 2021.


Located on Highway 440, between Papineau and Pie-IX, this luminous building will offer you the full range of Magnus Poirier funeral products and services. In addition, we will be located just minutes away from the superb Laval Cemetery, which has a vast choice of lots, columbariums, crypts and mausoleums.


From one life to the next since 1923… Magnus Poirier is an almost centennial funeral business that’s been family-owned for five generations. A family at your family’s service!
