Recently at Wisteria Place

Remembrance Day

We had the opportunity to respectfully honour all those who have and continue to fight for our country. We were grateful to be visited by some family as well to recognize the day together.


Recently we made Dreamcatchers and Rain Makers! Being taught how to recognize our community's various cultures through art is such a blessing.

Fashion Show

To be honest...we think our first ever fashion show is one of our favourite events we've ever held! So many participated and we all had the time of our lives.

Christmas Party 

The only thing better than having a Christmas party is working together as a community to make it happen. From baking festive goods to creating the decorations, we had the greatest time!


Celebrating a variety of cultural holidays is a priority here at Wisteria Place, and Diwali was no exception! It was a pleasure to celebrate through music, dancing, henna, and more.

EnBlanc Happy Hour

How do you make Happy Hour more exciting? Give it a theme! We had the greatest time at our EnBlanc Happy Hour where all residents and guests wore white!

Trees at the Cannery

The local Gulf of Georgia Cannery is holding the Steveston Festival of Trees throughout December, and a handful of our community went to visit!

Performance by Gustavo Herrera

An outstanding performance concert tenor by Gustavo Herrera voice left our residents speechless.
