About Pacific Arbour Retirement Communities
We offer quality that leads to our "seniors first" approach. We provide premium services to our residents so they can live with independence, dignity and safety at an optimal value to them. Our European heritage influences us as we strive for humble luxury that values art and culture. For example, we decorate using artwork from community artisans. While some people may be drawn to opulent surroundings, our communities attract seniors seeking quality and value. They prefer a more humble expression of the pleasures of life while sharing in the joy of friendship.
We respect innovation and value by setting and achieving superior sustainability outcomes. We have a vested interest in delivering responsible building practices and longevity—because we’re long-term operators who closely manage on-going energy and capital costs. Our decisions and actions of today are with us for a long time and that is why we seek every opportunity for efficiency and value and target a minimum standard equivalent to LEED Gold in our buildings. To reduce energy use and minimize our impact on the environment, we employ green building principles, reduce water use and wasteful lighting, use green housekeeping products and encourage staff to take transit. To us, sustainability also means strengthening our community with local work, services, entertainment and other attractions.
In addition to the environmental impact, our business model responds to social needs. We partner with local government and community service organizations and invest in events that support seniors in the local community. And, as a business, our economic sustainability is paramount. We continually review and test our assumptions and operations.
We pursue flexibility - meaning that each of our seniors residences are stamped with their own unique personality and are designed with the neighbourhood in mind. No two Pacific Arbour buildings are the same. Each reflects the needs and surroundings of each local community.
