About the Instructor:

Michael D’Mello is the manager at the Bereavement Authority of Ontario (BAO) responsible for licensing, education, outreach and the oversight of trust reporting under the Funeral, Burial and Cremation Services Act, 2002. The bereavement sector includes cemeteries, crematoriums, funeral establishments, funeral directors and transfer services, and related sales representatives and funeral pre-planners.

As the Registrar, 2000 – 2016, with the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services, he administered the Cemeteries Act (Revised) and subsequently as of July 1, 2012 the Funeral, Burial and Cremation Services Act, 2002, relating to cemeteries, crematoriums and burial site discoveries.

Prior to his recruitment as an investigator with the Ontario Government, Michael attended the University of Toronto and had a career in Policing and Real Estate sales. His studies at the University ranged from biology, physics, chemistry and psychology to sociology and criminology. His wide and varied work experiences include interaction with most religious organizations, ethnic groups and municipalities, First Nations communities, police, coroners, archaeologists, media, MPP’s, mayors and CAO’s and Provincial and Federal Ministries.  Issues he addressed often crossed inter-ministry boundaries - Ministries of Tourism, Culture and Sport; Indigenous and Aboriginal Affairs; Natural Resources & Forestry and Transportation, in order that burial sites are handled appropriately and that cemeteries are preserved, protected and respected as religious and historic sites and ultimately Canadian Heritage Sites.
