Our Mission

Minton House is a condominium complex which maintains a supported, independent living environment for seniors and strives to foster a sense of community among its residents.

The community is small

Minton House has common areas (living room, dining room, garden and patio)  where residents can spend time with each other.  The building only has 26 units and houses approximately 30 people.  All the residents can be accommodated in the dining room and lounge, and can easily get to know each other. 

but its spirit is strong

Most residents meet downstairs to have dinner together.  Coffee and tea are on offer in the morning and residents often come down for a cup of coffee or tea, a cookie and a chat.    

Recreation:  it's up to you!

At the moment Minton House has a number of social events going on:

Movie Night

A giant screen and loudspeakers were purchased for Movie Night, which is organized every Monday by a movie lover who always seems to find just the kind of movie we like. 

Other residents make suggestions about the kinds of movies they would like to see. 

On other days and times  the screen is available to residents who wish to watch TV.


Residents play bridge, backgammon and crib in the lounge.  Proposals for other games are welcome

A resident donated his piano to Minton House.      It is in the lounge, where anybody can play it.  Musicians are invited occasionally to play the piano or other instruments.

Jigsaw puzzles

 There is a dedicated mat for beautiful 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzles.  Any resident can contribute to their assembly at any time of day (except during dinner).  When the games table is put to another use, the mat is moved to one of the dining room tables.

Special events

Happy hours and special dinners are organized for festivities (e.g. Halloween, Christmas Carols, New Year’s Eve), as well as a barbecue on the patio in summer.  Look at the photos of our events!

Residents are invited to promote whatever activities they would like.  All they have to do is find other residents who are interested, and ask Council for funding of any material they require and approval for staff support. 

There is also the option of going to the Cook Street Village Activity Centre for Seniors, which is just round the corner - so much is going on there!
