 frequently asked questions

1, What is the mission statement of Cedarliving?
Cedarliving is founded on a deep respect for family values and for the elderly who wish to remain in West Vancouver at a comfortable seniors’ community service facility. Our mission statement is to empower and enrich the lives of senior citizens through the development and operation of a retirement community that offers an innovative energetical independent senior living experience. Our motto is Better Facilities. Better Services.

2, What makes 530 Inglewood Ave an ideal location for a senior community?
This location boasts both accessibility and privacy, and is, therefore, ideally suited to foster an active, comfortable, enriched, and sustainable senior community that will redefine West Van retirement living. Cedarliving will not be considered as a residential property when it comes to property assessment of the neighborhood. This high-end facility will not only offer state-of-the-art concepts and anti-aging technology and services, but it will also increase the long-term property value of the neighborhood.

3, What additional benefits does Cedarliving bring to the residents of Cedardale and West Vancouver community?
*A harmonious, friendly, and kind community awareness, coupled with a community facility designed to enhance the value of the community, can increase the value of our common home. Cedarliving’s goals are to build an essential community facility that meets the needs of the aging population and the senior's facility demand of West Vancouver;
*A 3-month Rent-Free Coupon towards the rental of an independent living unit will be offered to a limited number of West Vancouver residents that are early registrants through Cedarliving’s Neighbour First Program. For complete information and registration, please see the section “Register”;
*Cedarliving plans a children's daycare to alleviate this need in the community.
*Cedarliving proposes to erect parking stalls and EV chargers, to alleviate traffic congestion during School pick-up peak;
*Align with the District of West Vancouver, Cedarliving acknowledges that its building will be on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Squamish Nation, Tsleil-Waututh Nation, and Musqueam Nation. To honor and recognize these First Nations, in collaboration with First Nations, Cedarliving will construct one 31.5m high Indigenous Culturally Modified Tree trunk as a cultural attraction on the exterior wall of Cedarliving.

4, What efforts is Cedarliving making to alleviate traffic in Cedardale and West Vancouver?
*One of Cedarliving’s goals is to provide its residents with sufficient amenities so that Cedarliving in many ways can be a self-sustaining community that does not add too much additional burden onto the already busy traffic of West Vancouver and the Cedardale Community;
*Cedarliving is a seniors facility, and most seniors people are not moving their vehicles during peak hours;

5, What are the operational characteristics of Cedarliving?
*Element lifestyle retirement Inc is performing seniors facility consulting, which is running multiple local high-end retirement campuses including the Opal Retirement in Vancouver West.
*Multiple North American professional servicers will provide telemedicine, telenursing, and telehealth services under Canadian care card coverage or not.
*Buildings should be developed with people’s health and wellness at the center of the design. The WELL Standard takes a holistic approach to health in the built environment addressing behavior, operations, and design. WELL is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying, and monitoring features of the built environment that impact human health and well-being, through air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind. Cedarliving has registered for the WELL certification at IWBI.

6, What environmental impact would Cedarliving have on the Cedardale Community and the rest of West Vancouver?
*Since 2019, West Vancouver and the North Shore have experienced severe hemlock looper moth outbreaks, causing devastating damage to local forests. Cedarliving is making full use of this opportunity to work with environmental professionals to develop and formulate a tree preservation & replanting plan for its building site, aiming to remedy the adverse impact that climate change has on the environment.
*The view corridor study shows that the proposed building is overall in harmony with the site character. Cedarliving is doing its best to plan the hedge with sufficient width and proper height to protect the privacy exposure and reduce light pollution. Further, compared to similar facilities nearby, the proposed building has lower density and deeper community engagement.

7, What Community engagements is Cedarliving conducting?
*Cedarliving project brief and advertisements have been published on North Shore News, nextdoor.ca of local Communities, and West Vancouver Seniors Scene, and directly mailed to 500 neighbors. 
*Our team continues to absorb community feedback from various channels and continues to revise the proposal based on these very constructive comments.
*Your comments and opinions are extremely important to this project. You are welcome to chat with us on nextdoor.ca or send an email to survey@cedarliving.ca. After these community engagements, we will apply to the District of West Vancouver.
