11020 99 Ave, Edmonton
In the spirit of the growth in the area around the Collège St. Jean and Paroisse St-Thomas d’Aquin, in 1982, the Manoir Saint-Thomas, the second senior’s residence for francophones in Edmonton, was established on Rue Marie-Anne-Gaboury next to the Maison Saint-Joseph. The Manoir Saint-Joachim, a senior’s residence with 150 suites, had opened the previous year next to Église Saint-Joachim. Eventually the large Maison Saint-Joseph proved much too expensive for the Filles de Jésus to maintain and they decided to sell it. A community health centre which offers services in French and English, the Centre de Santé Saint-Thomas was built on the site through the auspices of the Société des Manoirs Saint-Joachim et Saint-Thomas in 2000 and now offers many types of health services including apartments for assisted living.
