The best thing about the Village is the independent living it provides. It’s perfect for people like us; people who want to live in their own home, but who want the convenience and security of living in a community.
Fred and Mary W.

It is a beautiful community has many lovely ponds, lovely trees and streets that are quiet and the Trillium Club. We were intrigued by the many activities, clubs and crafts that are available. All the people we met at St Elizabeth village are so welcoming, enthusiastic about living in the community and the clubs and activities for us all. We fell in love with it. Sitting on a bench listening to all the birds, then there are the swans and many walking trails. We weren’t the first to buy, but I think that we are in the first 10, and happy that we are!

Larry and Janet S.

We virtually designed our own home exactly as we wanted it, and the folks at ZEST accommodated our design ideas willingly. We love our new home. We are pretty sure we chose wisely. We really love it here.

As Seen On

Addressing COVID-19

As the impact of COVID-19 is felt across the globe, we have implemented procedures to ensure the health and safety of our residents, their families, our staff and our vendors.

In order to follow mandated provincial guidelines, we are cancelling all programs and events, and closing all recreational and non-essential facilities. These closures will be in place until further notice.

All of our staff are required to self isolate for 14 days prior to returning to work if they have traveled outside of Canada or come into contact with someone who has travelled internationally.  In addition to these steps, all staff and vendors are subject to thorough assessment and screening on a daily basis.  Furthermore, we have temporarily closed our presentation centre.  You can seek information by calling our Sales representatives at 905-574-8178.

We also request that residents self isolate for 14 days when returning home from destinations outside of Canada or have been in direct contact with anyone who may have travelled internationally.  Social distancing is an important contribution that everyone can make to help keep ourselves, our loved ones and our neighbours safe.  We continue to work closely and follow all recommendations from our local public health team and the Ministry of Health to protect the health and safety of our residents and staff.

Thank you for your support and understanding during a rapidly evolving situation as we make every effort to support our residents, staff, and the communities we serve.

We look forward to returning to our regular fun, social and active lifestyle as soon as possible.
