Welcome to Canterbury

Canterbury Foundation has given the Promise of Home to Edmonton seniors since 1974

Located in the quiet, desirable neighbourhood of Laurier Heights, we offer three retirement living options, a variety of healthcare services, recreational programs and a wide range of amenities. All of these things contribute to providing a home where Edmonton seniors can experience a high quality of life, feel comfortable, safe and part of a vibrant community.

Residents of Canterbury benefit from meal services, housekeeping, laundry services, around-the-clock Registered Nurse availability, as well as a wide range of recreational programs and activities to meet their social, mental and physical needs. In addition to the high-quality, independent living, assisted living and supportive living options, the staff at Canterbury are passionate about their work, the residents they serve and enhancing the quality of life for seniors in their community.

I had the pleasure of being able to work alongside The staff at Canterbury Foundation this spring. Although the conditions that we met were less than favourable, it was an unbelievable pleasure to collaborate with an amazing staff.

I have personally never encountered such a dedicated staff that’s only priority was taking care of the residents that had been affected and inconvenienced. It was very refreshing to see how quick they reacted, assisted and relocated residents.

Not only is the facility beautiful, but they constantly keep all residents busy with activities that enrich their lives. I have never experienced a facility that cares for the residents as if they were family. If doesn’t matter if it is the consideration shown from management, the patience portrayed by maintenance or friendliness felt by the on floor staff, you could not go wrong with the Canterbury Foundation.
