To set and maintain the highest level of competence, ethics and educational standard for funeral service professionals.


Members of the Board


Jeff Hagel, Industry Member

After working for Ski Cellar part time on the equipment sales floor for 10 years Jeff knew he had a passion for small business and helping provide people with great customer service. In 2000 he graduated with an applied degree in small business and entrepreneurship and a diploma in international business from Mount Royal University. Working outside of the funeral profess still for Ski Cellar part time and full time for Chrysler Financial gave him a great insight to the relationship between small businesses and their financial lender while still seeing first hand how important it was to work hard and provide great customer service.

In 2005 Jeff made a career change and moved to Edmonton to begin his career in the Funeral Profession. Now in his 9th year with McInnis and Holloway and 5 years as a partner Jeff is eager to increase his involvement with the Alberta Funeral Services Regulatory Board to protect the profession well into the future.



Born and raised in Southern Alberta, he began his funeral service career in 1993, in Lethbridge, where he became licenced as a funeral director and embalmer. Scott and his wife were fortunate to be able to start their family in Lethbridge and in 2002, made the decision to relocate their family to Calgary where he continued in funeral service before starting with Southland Funeral Chapel of Taber in 2004. Scott, along with a business partner, purchased Southland Funeral Chapel in the spring of 2014.

After almost twenty five years in the industry, Scott remains passionate about funeral service but more importantly takes his role as a caregiver very seriously. He believes that caring for those who have passed away and their families is a privilege, not a right. His commitment to both the funeral service industry and the families he is privileged to support is an opportunity to serve both professionally and personally. Scott feels strongly that the opportunity to serve with the regulatory board offers him the ability to assist in ensuring that the foundation of ethics and integrity in funeral service will continue to remain strong for years to come.
