Our mission: to improve the quality of life for seniors. We fulfill this mission by providing seniors daily care and health monitoring designed with their needs in mind.

Peace Portal Seniors Village is a place where each resident is acknowledged as unique.  Acting on this belief enhances their sense of dignity, usefulness and self-respect, fostering both mental and physical health. 

We provide choices of services and programs to suit residents’ mobility and interests. Our experienced staff treat the residents like family, and the result of this important value, acted upon daily, improves the quality of life for all.

Our community provides a comfortable surroundings in a home-like setting. Peace Portal Seniors Village was designed as a residential care community and built to support that purpose, being completed in 1986. 

The two-storey residential care community has just over 30,000 square feet with rooms on two floors. The original design and features have served its purpose well since it opened. 

The building has the capacity for 84 residential care beds, which are a combination of publicly subsidized residential care beds and private pay suites.

A recent $1.6 million renovation project was completed at the end of June 2018 to update and extend the life of the building into the future.
