The Canterbury Tradition

Over its 35-year history, Canterbury Foundation has distinguished itself as a high-quality provider of supportive housing for the elderly. Since the opening of Canterbury Court in 1974, we have constantly reassessed and responded to the changing needs and expectations of seniors in Edmonton by steadily broadening the range of accommodation offered to residents. The construction of Canterbury Manor in 1992 and the creation of Canterbury Lane in 1998 demonstrate this commitment to the ongoing improvement of facilities and services. The seamless “continuum of care” made possible by our three facilities enables residents to remain in a familiar environment as their needs for support and assistance change.

Edmontonians recognize Canterbury as a preferred facility for housing and care of seniors, providing a home where individuals can live with dignity and respect. The safety, comfort and privacy of every resident are the primary concerns for the staff at each of our residences. Meal services, housekeeping, laundry services, a comprehensive security system, and on-site medical services – including a medical clinic and around-the-clock access to the expert advice and assistance of a professional nurse – are just some of the amenities that every resident at Canterbury enjoys. The level of staffing and professional qualifications ensure personalized care and support for all residents.

At Canterbury we pride ourselves on our ability to offer a wide variety of daily activities to meet residents’ social, mental and physical needs. Residents are free to participate in the programs when and as they choose, maintaining control over their daily schedule. Visitors and residents alike enjoy the beautiful landscaped gardens that surround our quiet community and the welcoming environment of our facilities.
