McQueen Residence

Easter Seals McQueen Residence is a community-based group living experience for adults with physical disabilities located in Edmonton. It was the first accessible group home for adults in Canada.

This fully-staffed residence provides personal care attendants 24 hours a day. Each resident has a private room and shares a common kitchen, dining and living area.

Residents are encouraged to learn life skills necessary for independent living in a community setting. They share in the daily management of the house by serving on various committees. This invaluable experience helps them gain confidence and prepare them for a potentially more independent lifestyle in the future.

Did You Know Part 1

In 1951 Canadian Mothers began marches such as one led by Canada’s first female Cabinet Minister, Ellen Fairclough, MP for Hamilton West. As a result of their efforts, the research of Dr. Jonas Salk was well funded, creating the historic made-in-Canada cure for polio. Today, Easter Seals Alberta funds vital programs and services for adults with disabilities and special needs.
