  • Vancouver mayors
  • Firefighters and police officers who died while on active duty
  • WWI and WWII veterans
  • Freemasons, Knights of Pythias, and Odd Fellows members
  • Victims of disasters, including the SS Sophia, Lakeview Tram, and Rogers Pass 

All SoulsAltar - All Souls event

All Souls is an annual series of events hosted by Mountain View Cemetery to honour and remember the dead.

The family-oriented community events reflect the tradition of many cultures around the world where the days at the end of October and beginning of November are a time for honouring the dead in our lives through ceremony and celebration and the maintenance of family grave sites. 

Mountain View’s All Souls events are free and include talks, presentations, crafts, and music that explore various traditions and rituals.

Events take place in the cemetery at the end of October each year.
