South lawnCity Cemeteries

The city maintains three cemeteries: Baker (Canoe), Mt. Ida and Shuswap Memorial.

Baker Cemetery is no longer active and is located in North Canoe.

Mt. Ida Cemetery, established in 1894 is approximately 110 acres of which only nine acres are suitable for cemetery development. There are approximately 75 to 80 interments per year. Recently the City installed a 24 unit columbarium to facilitate cremation internments. The Mt Ida Cemetery is approaching capacity, prompting the City to acquire a third parcel of land and develop the Shuswap Memorial Cemetery.

The Shuswap Memorial Cemetery is a 25 acre cemetery site in the South East of Salmon Arm with space for grave plots, columbariums, family vessels and scattering gardens.
