About Us

History

The Greater North Foundation (originally known as the Athabasca County Foundation) was formally established as a Foundation on April 3, 1984 through Ministerial Order #36/84. At this time, the Foundation was responsible for three lodges:

  • Old Pleasant Valley Lodge in Athabasca (Opened 1960, was closed in 2010 and replaced with the New Pleasant Valley Lodge)
  • Old Lacalta Lodge in Lac La Biche (Opened 1971 and closed in 2010 and replaced with the New Lacalta Lodge.)
  • Wildrose Villa in Boyle (Opened 1978 and still operating)

Effective April 1, 1996, the Greater North Foundation was established as a “Management Body” by Ministerial Order #H:025/96 under the Alberta Housing Act.  Since then our mandate has been expanded to include operation of senior's self contained housing units and housing programs for non senior households in our member communities.   We currently have 26 project (328 units/beds) and provide rent supplements in a number of communities.
