Evening meals brought in from the commercial kitchen at our sister facility, Hyde Park View, are available for an additional cost.  Residents enjoy the lovely ambiance of the beautiful Elim Lodge Dining Room.

Are you taking names for rental apartments?

Unfortunately, we are not currently accepting any applications for rental suites. The current real estate market and a growing shortage of rental apartments in Saskatoon has caused our waiting lists to increase dramatically. Low turnover of our suites has meant that there are long waiting periods for applicants.

We invite you to check back periodically, to inquire about the status of our applications.

Are there advantages to a life-lease over a condominium?

There are several advantages of a life-lease:

  • guarenteed buy-back of the lease
  • pre-determined price when selling, no legal fees, no realtor fees
  • will never be assessed for major repairs
  • more comparisons on Life-Lease page
