Help us build for the future

The number of seniors in Alberta continues to grow and, in the next 15 years, that number will be nearly one million.

There is a significant future need for affordable seniors’ housing, and it is for this reason that GEF Seniors Housing started the Building for Life Fund. All contributions to this Fund go directly to finance new GEF capital building projects in Edmonton.

In just the past five years, the Fund has contributed to two major building projects: Sakaw Terrace in southeast Edmonton’s Mill Woods community in 2018 and Ottewell Terrace, in southeast Edmonton’s Ottewell community in 2016.

Your contributions to this Fund will help us build more affordable seniors housing in Edmonton. Our next building project is Lauderdale Terrace, which is redeveloping a 12-unit duplex project in Edmonton’s northeast, into a 37-unit affordable housing apartment complex. We are hoping construction will begin in late summer, 2021.
