Abbeyfield House St Peters is a small family-style Independent Living seniors’ residence centrally located in a quiet residential neighbourhood of Victoria on Southern Vancouver Island, walking distance to shops, medical care, churches and bus service.

Abbeyfield St House St Peters was built in 1988, is operated by Abbeyfield St Peters Society and managed by a Volunteer Board of Directors and other volunteers from the surrounding community.

Abbeyfield House St Peters Society is non-profit subsidized housing for seniors and is also a registered charity. We gratefully accept donations. A tax receipt will be provided.


The Abbeyfield Housing Concept began in England in 1955 and there are 19 Abbeyfield Houses across  Canada and about 800 Abbeyfield Houses globally. All Abbeyfield Societies operate according to the guiding principles of the Abbeyfield Movement, foremost of which is that older adults have an important role to play amongst their families, friends, and in the larger community.

Is Abbeyfield St Peters Right for You?

Are you independent and mobile, able to look after yourself and your own needs?
