Opened April 1, 2000, Silver Birch Lodge is a contemporary-styled 100-room lodge serving Strathcona County and area. The lodge offers several floor plans and pricing options within a home-like atmosphere. It is close to amenities with a major shopping center a short bus ride or drive from the lodge. The lodge provides a high quality of life in a caring and friendly manner to seniors 65 years or older who are active and functionally independent.

Silver Birch Lodge was the first facility to be constructed on a twelve-acre site that now hosts a seniors’ apartment complex, affordable living family housing, and shares space with the Robin Hood Association.

In early 2011 the lodge was renovated to expand its service and public areas, including an expanded dining room and kitchen, a private auditorium and chapel, and specialized games, exercise, and crafting areas. An additional expansion, Silver Birch Haven, was added in 2018. This added an additional 94 units of independent lodge accommodations to the site.
