Participate in our engaging activities

You’re sure to find leisure activities to brighten your day and suit your varied needs, interests and abilities. A flat, paved trail encircles the residence, providing a safe and convenient spot to get some fresh air amid beautiful natural surroundings, and this trail connects to city walking trails too. You may enjoy gardening, or just relaxing on our large terrace outfitted with a gazebo, benches, and seating areas. Try your hand at arts and craft workshops or cultural theme days, or stay active with a senior-friendly fitness class. You can also look forward to outings in and around Thunder Bay via our private shuttle bus, whether it’s an informal sightseeing tour, doing a little shopping, or visiting a new café.

Accessible amenities, close by your private suite, are certainly an advantage to retirement living at Chartwell Thunder Bay. Watch a classic film in our well-appointed movie theatre or select a mystery or biography from our fireside library. Challenge a friend to a round of cards in the games room or entertain a visitor in the lounge. Our country kitchen is another great spot to enjoy a cooking demonstration or learn a new skill.
