The future home of Parkland at the Common is at the corner of Robie St. and Quinpool Rd. in Halifax. The large walls separating the construction site from pedestrians and traffic can be unsightly, so we took this opportunity to provide a blank canvas to local artists.
Through a partnership with Nocturne: Art at Night and Trackside Studio, the hoarding wall is now home to beautiful murals for the community to enjoy as a source of local interest and pride.
Centre collaboratif d’apprentissage sur le vieillissement
At Faubourg du Mascaret, our first French-language campus, we are proud to partner with Université de Moncton on the Collaborative Learning Centre on Aging (CLCA) (Centre collaboratif d’apprentissage sur le vieillissement). The CLCA features an inter-professional learning environment for health professionals, research opportunities, internships, and jobs for students in the province. The CLCA Partnership Management Committee continues to make progress with plans to hire a jointly funded Liaison Officer to provide oversight and the coordination of the CLCA activities which will support efforts to advance its priorities.
Leading the Way to Greener Living
Currently, in the second year of a two-year process to achieve ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems (EnMS) certification, we are putting processing in place to adopt a strict set of energy management objectives, guidelines and practices that result in energy efficiency and reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. While certifying each community is a significant investment, we are committed to energy conservation for our existing communities while ensuring all new construction is built to maintain the certification criteria.
Welcome to Main Street
The new communities we create are so much more than a physical space, they are a home that supports residents in feeling fulfilled in their life while maintaining their connection to the greater community. Our innovative Main Street concept is featured in many of our new long term care communities that includes an interior streetscape helping residents maintain independence, restores youthful memories and encourages socialization and a sense of community. Our three nursing homes opened last year in Fredericton, Moncton and Miramichi all feature the Main Street concept.Back
