About Us

September 2020 marked our 30th anniversary! We thank everyone who has been with us along the way - residents, their families and our staff - both past and present! We consider you all part of The Berkeley family and we look forward to all those who will become part of the family in the future!

30 Years of Retirement Living

The first retirement residence in Halifax, The Berkeley Halifax, opened its doors on Green Street in September 1990. Since then, the business has grown to include a total of four buildings in HRM - The Berkeley Dartmouth on Eisener Boulevard, The Berkeley Bedford on Convoy Run and The Berkeley Gladstone on Gladstone Street in Halifax. We are currently in the late phases of construction of The Berkeley on Pepperell in the Quinpool District of Halifax. We are very excited to have a presence in this cozy residential and very conveniently located neighbourhood. We look forward to welcoming residents in early 2021!

Each building boasts the character of its community, and the social calendar reflects the interests of its residents. Though each building is unique, they are all within walking distance of important amenities such as grocery stores, pharmacies and doctors’ offices. 

The Berkeley prides itself on being an intimate, welcoming community for seniors with many included benefits. We deliver extraordinary, personalized customer service to our residents in a positive, caring environment where we our staff feel satisfied, empowered and connected to our residents. We recognize that people are the most important aspect of our business.

We are a family-owned business with roots in this community as far back as four generations. We believe in supporting local businesses and charities, forming partnerships and giving back to our community while also ensuring that our residents love their lifestyle just as much as we love our home town and province!
