During each service, residents choose from a choice of two varied daily menus, with the option of selecting one of the many à la carte menus when they feel like it. Meals cooked on site by our qualified chef are based on Canada’s Food Guide and are adapted to the nutritional needs of seniors.
The daily menus are based on a 5-week cycle, which the chef transforms over the months to prioritize seasonal foods.
