New: 165 St Road Closure

165 Street is temporarily closed at 87 Avenue for construction. Motorists are asked to use 163 Street and 88 Avenue for the duration of this work. Detour signage will be placed along 163 Street and 87 Avenue to make sure vehicles are aware of how to enter and exit parking. Staff parking may still be accessed on 165 Street if approaching from the north. Currently, 87 Ave is reduced to one lane each direction (Westbound and Eastbound). This will remain until the work on 165 Street is complete, with an expected completion date of September 22. 


Visitation Reminder

Visitors are welcome to DROP-IN if you enter the building during our new ENTRY TIMES. Entry Times reflect the hours screeners are present.

One exception is for family and friends visiting a resident at end-of-life. You may come to the centre at any time and use the buzzer to enter the building after hours.

Masking Reminder

Visitors, volunteers, service providers, entertainers, and anyone entering our buildings must continue to:

  • Be screened.
  • Wear a mask in common areas
  • Perform hand hygiene
  • Maintain physical distancing.

Visitors may take part in recreation activities provided they:

  • refrain from eating and drinking
  • stay with their loved one
  • not be assisting with serving or assisting other residents at this time.  

Visitors can remove masks in private rooms or private visiting areas, unless the centre is on outbreak. In a shared room situation, the other resident/patient(s) must consent before a visitor can remove a mask and physical distancing of two metres must be maintained.
