Welcome to Wisteria Place

Life in Harmony

Harmony is the center of connection, compassion, and love when neighbours and friends share stories and laugh together. At Wisteria Place, we want to create a better future, where people of all cultures and faiths live harmoniously together.

Located in Steveston, BC

Newly built in 2020, Wisteria Place is an Independent Seniors’ living community in the spectacular waterfront community of Steveston, BC. We are in the heart of Richmond, next to the Steveston Buddhist Temple and Steveston Park.

Through our four central values—Compassion, Curiosity, Purposefulness, and Harmony—Wisteria Place emerges as a leader in senior communities. Our unique approach is specially engineered to foster authentic, meaningful lives.

We offer Independent Living options for seniors.
