Margaret Edgson Manor

In 2005, Margaret Edgson Manor opened the doors to 16 wheelchair accessible units and 54 regular suites. Grande Prairie Residential Society joined with the City of Grande Prairie’s Global Housing Initiative, in a unique partnership, to provide affordable housing to meet a variety of needs. All units have two bedrooms, and the barrier free suites are equipped with similar features to our first two phases.  Margaret Edgson Manor is a sustainable housing project, with no government assistance to operate. 

The building was named for Margaret Edgson, who was a strong advocate for transportation and housing for people with disabilities.  Her estate contributed significantly to the project..
