leader in funeral service on Prince Edward Island.
Situated on Ole King Square, the funeral home is only minutes away from
Province House, the Confederation Centre of the Arts and the beautiful
waterfront that is so much a part of the charm of Prince Edward Island's

services that have been provided to families for almost 80 years.
Throughout the years many challenges have been overcome, perhaps the most
devastating being a fire, which completely destroyed the funeral home in
January of 1974.

modern facility provides a formal chapel, three visitation rooms, lounge
areas, selection room, arrangement offices and business offices. MacLean's
is pleased to also offer an inviting reception room complete with full
kitchen facilities. This tearoom has been used by a number of families who
wish to gather with friends and loved ones after a service.
