  • Green Acres Foundation provides

    affordable housing and quality services

    responsive to the needs of clients.

    From Your Manager,

    Residency & Service Agreement

    May 2018



    Roger Hacior

    As you all know, in early April I took on some new responsibilities, managing Pemmican Lodge and also Black Rock Terrace. What makes this possible is that we have a strong team of hard working and dedicated employees at each building. In order to support each of our teams and our residents, we have hired assistant managers for each lodge.

    Please join me in welcoming Clinton Kienzle to our Pemmican team, taking on the role of our first ever assistant manager at Pemmican Lodge. Clinton will spend the first few weeks learning the ins and outs of the administration side of the Green Acres Foundation operations. He will then join us later this month at the lodge. And finally, I think it is safe to say, “welcome to Spring”!

    6. Financial Information: As per the Alberta Housing Act and its regulations, the Resident is required to submit their most recent Notice of Assessment from Canada Revenue Agency to the Foundation by June 1st on an annual basis in order to determine the Monthly Fee. Information provided in accordance with this provision may be subject to verification by the Foundation. The Resident acknowledges and agrees to provide income information as above or as requested by the Foundation.

    The Resident must notify the Foundation in writing within 15 days of any change in financial information. The Foundation will back-date the adjusted monthly fee to the commencement of the addition of new benefits.

    Failure to provide the Notice of Assessment may result in the maximum rent being charged.

  • Reminders

    Emergency Procedures - Loss of Cooling

    In the event of mechanical breakdown resulting in a loss of cooling particularly in warmer weather,

    procedures are in place to minimize the impact on residents. Residents can assist to keep the

    building as cool as possible by keeping windows securely closed when the temperature outside is 25°

    C or warmer. Keeping window coverings closed during daylight hours will help to keep the suite from

    heating up from the sun.

    Residents should dress lightly, turn off unnecessary lights, and may be moved to the coolest area of

    the building, which may be the basement. Cool liquids will be provided to residents throughout the


    In the event the situation cannot be resolved for a longer period of time, the Foundation may request

    that residents contact a family member to stay with until the situation is resolved.

    Please see your manager if you have any questions or concerns.

    Resident and Family Councils

    As you know, we have resident meetings quarterly. We hope you attend these meetings to give us

    your comments on activities, housekeeping, meals, maintenance, and the overall service we provide

    you. These meetings are also your opportunity to bring forward suggestions, requests, questions, or

    concerns that you have not already spoken to the Manager about. Family members are always

    welcome to attend these meetings.

    Recently the provincial government created the Resident-Family Councils Act. It is a formal process

    to create a council to address the topics that we currently talk about at our resident meetings. If you

    would like to create a formal Resident and Family Council, you are welcome to do so. Information can

    be found at
