  • I enjoyed my tour of Canterbury Place. The lounge areas next to the lobby are being renovated to open up the rooms and will look lovely once completed. Lots of good activities listed in the monthly program. There is a medical centre next door with doctors, dentist, optomistrist, pharmacy, accessed by a corridor, while there is also a visiting doctor. I like the studio I looked at and the current residents loves the expansive west facing view from her balcony. I

  • Not for Everyone

    You might need to move because there are no assisted living services provided. Canterbury is for those who are active and in good health. That was not made clear to our family members when they moved in. People's health needs change, so it is important to be aware that you will be asked or encouraged to move to a new home at some point, unless you are very fortunate.

    1. NOT pet friendly anymore. If you have a dog, you will be forced to carry it in your arms in the elevator. If you cannot do this, you will be forced to spend a lot of money purchasing a dog stroller that will take up a lot of room in your unit. NO garden area. Parks nearly but crossing is VERY unsafe on Ellerslie and Canterbury St.as there are no sidewalks on the north side of the street and not stop sign at the corner to cross Ellerslie. City said they are going to do something about this but who knows when. Management does not involve itself with resident safety outside the home, so some residents, on a few occasions, have walked down the street into the oncoming traffic. Be very careful if you need to cross Ellerslie, walk up to Yonge Street where there is a stop sign. 2. NOT enough outings. There is a nice company van but it is just for show. It sits idle for days aand weeks and does not take residents to local shopping centres or public swimming pools (outdoor in summer at Mitchell Field or indoors at Douglas Snow). It would be nice if the van were used to take people to local parks in the area and cultural events or concerts as well. If you can drive, bring your own car or take expensive taxis instead. If these are not options, you will be stuck in the residence pretty much year around except for a 2 or 3 outings a month, many of which involve going to the theatre or expensive restaurants. One trip was to Wal-Mart, though and was very popular. 3. Food is not always good. A lot of cookies and dessert to fill you up rather than a reasonable size bowl of healthy soup. Expect no more than a quarter cup size bowl for a meal. Your family members may need to supplement meals each week. If you invite family to barbecue lunch, you will be charged around 12 dollars for the lowest quality burger with only the most basic condiments --ketchup, mustard and relish--and a supermarket boxed neon green coleslaw salad. Convenience store ice cream for dessert. Thus not worth the money. 4. Staff are nice and do a good job cleaning and in reception. Activities such as excercise classes are enjoyable. 5. Most residents are nice and friendly. 6. Units are very, very small. Dimentions of the floor plan do not match reality. A very small fridge without a freezer, just a small ice box, makes it hard for family to bring your favourite dishes and store these. Microwave provided is useful. Laundry not in unit but one on every floor. Very god air conditioning and heating available on demand year round.
