VIDEO: Please Help The People of Fort McMurray Alberta Canada – City on Fire

In the unlikely event you have not heard about the devastating wild fire in Fort McMurray Alberta Canada, please take 3 minutes to watch this summary of the events of  May 3 to 6, 2016.

The town has been devastated in what is Canada’s largest and most expensive disaster.  This happened so quickly most of these people never had a chance to take their belongings.  Below are the raw numbers… so far:chestermere-fort-mcmurray-wild-fires-fund-raiser

  • about 2000 buildings (mostly houses) have burned to the ground
  • 100,000 people have been evacuated
  • most, if not all, remaining buildings will have smoke damage
  • more than 10,000 people will likely not be able to return for months

NOW IS THE TIME TO HELP!

Like many organizations and people, the City of Chestermere will be host to a fund raiser on Friday May 13th at the Chestermere Rec Center run by MLA Leela Sharon Aheer, Chestermere Lifepath Wellness Center, Chestermere Langdon Oilmen’s Association and Westcreek Autowash.

The Alberta Government is matching contributions to the Canadian Red Cross and so is the Canadian Federal Government.  This means if you donate $100, it will become $300.  Many other organizations are matching funds and then donating them to the Red Cross, which means you $100 donation could be doubled by (for instance) Safeway to $200, and the Province and the Feds will match making that donations turning it into $600. 

If you don’t like the Red Cross, there are MANY other places your donations can directly help people.   Please see: http://crisisreliefcentre.org/2016fortmcmurray/donate/ for a full list of vetted organizations.

Phase 2 of The Chestermere Health Center is a Go!

Prime funds is advancing the Chestermere Health Center with a second building cleverly  named Phase 2.

Chestermere-Health-Center-Phase-2With AHS (Alberta Health Services) being our anchor tenant of Phase 1, we are confident we will attract some large anchor tenants for Phase 2 as well.

The new building will be on the same site as Phase 1 and will share its parking facilities.

Approvals are nearing completion for the new phase and shovels should be in the ground in the coming weeks.

This is great news for the residents of Chestermere, Langdon and the surrounding area.

Chestermere Community Health Center is NOW OPEN!

The Chestermere Community Health Center had its Grand Opening on January 14th and will be open the public by the time you read this.

Leela Aheer, one of the owners of the building, said it was a great day for Chestermere.  “It has been a long time coming and the wait was worth it.  We know this facility is the first step in many advances in localized health care for our community.”  She went on to say that “The construction has been delayed several times due to the uncertain economic conditions of the last five years but I am very proud that we choose to persist when similar projects in other Towns had been scrapped”.

The Chestermere Community Health Center facility is in a “phase one” mode with a staff of more than 30 and currently offers many services including:

  • Lab Services
  • Mental Health Services
  • Well Baby
  • Counselling Services

A second building is under construction at the same site and should be completed in 2015.  There are no announcements of what services are going into that expansion but Leela Aheer tells us that several leases have already been signed.

Chestermere Community Health Care Centre to open in 2014

 Phase 1 of the Chestermere Community Health Centre in Kinniburgh is well on its way to pening in 2014. Located on the south east side of Chestermere, this 22,000 sq. ft. building will be home to Alberta Health Services (AHS) which will occupy almost half of the entire space.

 AHS will be relocating and amalgamating spaces currently located within Chestermere and Strathmore, and will now be under one roof in the new building. According to Don Stewart with Alberta Health Services, this will allow AHS to consolidate existing programs, including mental health, public health and home care in one facility.

 AHS will take possession of the space in the early New Year and will begin tenant improvements as soon as possible, opening to the public in late 2014.  The rest of the building considered to be Phase 1 will include a pharmacy, walk-in medical clinic, chiropractor, coffee shop, a preschool centre and retail space.

 Phase 2, which will begin construction in spring of 2014 will be an identical sized building as phase one and is expected to be completed the following fall. It will have space for a lab and diagnostic imaging, a dentist office and optometrist, a daycare and more retail spaces such as restaurants.

 Bob Gaidhar is the Director of Development and Senior Partner of Prime Developments and the developer of the Health Care building.  He explains that despite many efforts, it was not possible to have the lab and diagnostics in Phase 1 of the project. “The lab and diagnostics companies are private entities and require a population of 20-25,000 people before they will consider leasing a space,” says Gaidhar but he adds that room will be left in the second phase to house it once the population justifies the addition…
