For many years, there has been a growing interest from within the upper Fraser Valley faith communities about developing a Christian retirement village similar to Elim Village in Surrey. This ‘interest’ is now becoming a reality.
Welcome to Elim Village Garrison Crossing!
Proposed Site Plan
The Elim Housing (Chilliwack) Society was formed in September 2014. The Society’s goal was to pursue the development of a Christian retirement village that could practically serve the faith communities in the upper Fraser Valley area. The Society has since purchased an 8.6 acre parcel of land in the Garrison Crossing area of Chilliwack and a comprehensive site plan that encompasses Elim Village’s campus of care model is being developed.
Currently, the beginning stages of construction for “The Douglas” is underway. This is the second of four Independent Living buildings for seniors who are 60 years or older. The ground breaking of the 47 unit, four storey building began in early spring of this year with an anticipated completion date of late 2019.
The first of the four Independent Living building named “The Sequoia” is completed and residents have moved in. There are still a few suites left in this brand new building. Contact the Presentation Centre for more information on availability.
