Why use In Memoriam UBC?
An In Memoriam page enables friends and family to share memories of a loved one, and to create a legacy for them by inviting donations in their memory. In Memoriam UBC also provides a space to share messages, memories, and photos.
Are pages personalized?
Yes. Each page includes a profile picture chosen by family and/or friends, a written tribute to the person’s life and their connection to UBC, personal messages from family and other site visitors, and a banner image that can be personalized from five options.
Can I post additional photos or videos to the online page?
Yes, friends and family can post memories directly to their loved one’s page by clicking the “Add Your Memory” button.

I can’t find the In Memoriam page I’m looking for. What should I do?
These pages are at the discretion of the family and loved ones, so not all UBC memorial funds have an In Memoriam page associated with them. Please contact us through our contact form, or call us at 604.827.4111 and we can help find what you are looking for.
