Help Us Build for the Future

The number of seniors is only growing. In Alberta alone, close to one million people will be seniors in just 15 short years. There’s an enormous future need for affordable seniors housing that simply isn’t being met.


This is why GEF Seniors Housing started the Building for Life Fund. All contributions to the fund go directly to new capital building projects in Edmonton. The fund has seen a lot of successes already. The most recent being Ottewell Terrace, which saw more than 50 seniors move in and call home in 2015.


With help from our community partners and people like you, we can continue these successes. The next major capital project, Sakaw Terrace, broke ground in 2016. By 2018, more than 150 Edmontonians will be calling Sakaw Terrace home.

The mission to ensure that no senior ever has to worry about where they are going to call home has come a long way. There are more homes to build, more seniors looking for somewhere to live, and with your help we can all make sure that the more than one million seniors in Alberta will have housing options that are friendly, affordable, and secure.
