Discover an active lifestyle

Over 200 retirees and seniors already call Origin Evergreen home. “That’s a remarkable achievement in such a short time”, says Elisa Prashad, Vice President of Marketing with Origin. “It shows that older adults are really embracing the idea of living a healthy lifestyle.”

Everything is literally at your doorstep in this community with over 42,000 square feet of amenity space. The overall complex consists of a 13 storey retirement condominium building, a 10 storey full service rental retirement community and two phases of ‘Garden Flats’ condominiums in a three-storey building along the perimeter of the site.

Exercise classYou may choose to dine in one of 6 different on-site venues, book a pedicure at the full service Evergreen Spa, take an aqua-fit class in the salt-water pool, take part in daily fitness programs, art, gardening and cooking classes. There is easy access to on-site health services as well. This is indeed the lifestyle many seniors aspire to.

“After my first tour, I knew I needed to look no further” says S.Callin a resident of Origin Evergreen, “the amenities are many and first class”.

The biggest advantage to this community is that the community boasts a wide compliment of staff each day, unlike traditional condo living. “Life is just getting started at 10:00am here at Evergreen” says Mrs. Prashad. “This community is designed with seniors in mind and we’ve programmed the spaces to appeal to the vast array of hobbies and interests this group may have.”

“The staff, everyone is so friendly, the atmosphere is pleasant all the time” states resident Marg Karppi.

The community has proven to be a popular choice among GTA seniors. The condominiums are approaching sell-out; however there are great garden suites and tower suites still available. The full service rental suites are about 50% occupied and offer a great all-inclusive lifestyle with meals, recreation and many services included in the monthly rate.

The rental retirement community also has a second floor dedicated to assisted living – Astoria Suites – providing more care to those who need it. This area is staffed by health care support teams around the clock to ensure the highest quality of care and resident well-being.

Origin Active Lifestyle Communities is the company responsible for this ground-breaking project. Origin is a Canadian owned company, based in Toronto and its only business is caring for seniors. Origin manages Origin at Longwood on Vancouver Island in British Columbia as well as managing four other retirement communities in Alberta .

Part of Origin’s beliefs is what they refer to as ‘The Origin Way’, principles that guide how they operate their buildings and lead their staff. “Living at Origin Evergreen has improved our lives,” say Mary and Arthur Webster, a heart-felt comment that is shared at this extraordinary community.
