In 1956, the United Church of Canada established Northdale Manor as a home for senior citizens by converting the original home of the Taylor family – originally built in 1906. The United Church sold their interest to Northdale Manor for $2.00 and the organization was incorporated as a charitable corporation in 1998. Originally, Northdale Manor was a home for the aged; then in 1994 became a retirement home. A volunteer Board of Directors is responsible for the oversight and policy direction of the facility. Northdale Manor is not funded by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and survives solely on resident fees and through generous donations.
In May 2007, after a lengthy fundraising campaign and with the overwhelming support of the community, Northdale Manor opened its new facility, which now provides a home for 70-75 seniors. We currently enjoy a healthy waiting list.
