George Derby Master Planning

Project Description

Project Name: George Derby Master Planning
: Burnaby, BC
Client: George Derby Care Society
Description: A seniors community with Long-Term Care and Independent Living
Land Area: 28 Acres


The original George Derby Centre was built over 50 years ago as a rehabilitation centre for young disabled veterans returning from the war with the goal of promoting their return to community living. In 1988, the new George Derby Centre opened as a 300-bed Intermediate Care facility providing residential care to former veterans of the Armed Forces.  Since then the Centre has welcomed non-veterans to address the changing demographics.  In 2017 the newly constructed Derby Manor was opened with 122 units of independent living with support services available to residents.  The Care Society continues to look ahead at meeting the needs of their current residents and opportunities to use their resources to provide more housing in the future.
