About Us

MacIsaac Funeral Home has recently completed of our nintieth year of operation. As each year passes is often a time of reflection. We contemplate our past deeds and renew our hope for the promise that the future may hold. One thing has remained constant through the nine decades that have passed since we first opened our doors. Simply stated, we are dedicated to providing our community with the highest standard of service that we may provide. The families of our community deserve this much at your time of grief and loss. Our family roots in Antigonish county community extend to the earliest days of the community. Jack MacIsaac he began his enterprise in 1926. His son Vincent became involved with the business at an early age and graduated from the American Mortuary Academy, New York City in 1947. It was in this same year that Jack MacIsaac moved the business to its current location on Pleasant Street. Jack MacIsaac passed away in 1972, James MacPherson became involved in the business around this same time. Illness forced Vincent into an early retirement in 1981. It was at this time that Joan MacIsaac became the driving force behind the business. John MacIsaac returned to Antigonish to enter into the family service in 1987. John represents the third generation of the MacIsaac family to have the honour of serving our community.

You may have noticed some changes in the outward appearance of the facility on Pleasant Street. This is the first step in a phased approach to updating our facilities. The decision was made to stay in our present location. Plans will call for some fairly ambitious renovations. These changes are being undertaken to reflect our wish to preserve the traditional aspects and atmosphere of the Funeral Home while attending to the changing needs of our community. Our hope is that we will have the honour of delivering the kind of personal service you have come to expect from MacIsaac Funeral Home over the past eighty years. Locally owned and operated is not just a buzzword to us, it is a commitment to our community that we will continue to respect and honour over the next ninty years.

Family is the lifeblood of any community, we will endeavour to continue in providing your family with the compassionate and dedicated service with which we have had the privilege of delivering to the families of Northeastern Nova Scotia.
