► Certain cemeteries of Bathurst Lawn Memorial Park (BLMP) became moribund due to a lack of continuity and mismanagement.
► Executives of BLMP explored options to help these organizations stay viable.
► In 1999 JCMI was founded in order to assume management of these organizations.
► BLMP approached JCMI to manage a community section (JCMI Section #55) to offer unaffiliated Jews access to burial plots. Proceeds from the sale of plots were used to fund major expenses in the BLMP such as a new roadway, improved parking, landscaping and a new drainage system.
► Today, due to an increased need for this service, JCMI manages fourteen cemetery sections, seven within BLMP, four within Mount Sinai Memorial Park (MSMP), two within Roselawn Avenue Cemetery and one within Jones Ave. Cemetery which has expanded JCMI’s service to the Jewish community.
