Christian Senior Citizens Homes Society of Northern Alberta


The Christian Senior Citizens Home Society of Northern Alberta was registered as a charitable not-for-profit society under the Government of Alberta’s Societies Act in 1968. Since then, the Society has provided both independent and assisted living facilities to seniors in our Christian community. All of this is accomplished under the guiding principles captured in the name Emmanuel, which means God with us.

For more than 45 years, Society members and the Reformed Christian community have, through prayers, donations and time, enabled Emmanuel Home to provide quality housing for seniors and individualized care in a vibrant, loving and supportive retirement community.

When you become a member, you get the chance to provide your input on significant issues that affect residents and their families. You will also receive regular information, filling you in on all the latest news and events at Emmanuel Home and you will be invited to participate in many events during the year.

Annual membership dues are $20.00 per person or $30.00 per family. You can give your membership contributions online.  If you are a new member, complete the attached form and email to Coby Benoit at cbenoit@emmanuelhome.ca or mail it to Emmanuel Home, 13429 57 St NW, Edmonton, AB, T5A 0T8.
