Affordable Housing

Affordable Housing apartments are for seniors who are able to live independently and want the security of living in a seniors’ apartment building.  North Ridge Place in St. Albert is our first facility under the Affordable Housing living option and our newest building.  It officially opened in August 2010 and offers one bedroom units for singles and two bedroom units for couples.
