The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) uses body transportation firms to safely and compassionately move people who have died.
As of September 30, 2016 the OCME will only use contracted body transport providers, except in special circumstances.
The OCME pays for the transportation of a body from a scene of death in Alberta to our office in Calgary or Edmonton. The OCME also pays for the return of the body to the next of kin’s chosen funeral home, up to the same distance as the trip from the scene of death to our office.
Apply to transport dead bodies
The OCME only uses contracted body transport providers, except in special circumstances.
A potential vendor that’s interested in providing body transportation services to the OCME must apply to be considered as a ‘pre-qualified resource.’ This process provides open, fair and transparent access to qualified service providers.
