Enriching Lives for over 60 Years.

Housing | Support | Enrichment 

We are The Excel Advantage 

At the Excel Society, we strive to be at the forefront of everyday excellence and innovation in Community Living and Supportive Services. We care about people and want those who come to the Excel Society to feel accepted, valued, and connected to a meaningful, supportive community.

With the help of The Excel Advantage, our team is able to realize our vision through our mission, guide our behaviours, set our priorities, and align our collaborative efforts. This bold, new strategy recognized that every team member has a role in making the difference to not only our clients, but also fellow team members and the community as a whole.


By providing exceptional care through meaningful engagement, we are able to house, support and enrich the people in our care to help them achieve their own physical, emotional, and psychological goals on their terms. 


Our Commitment to the Community

At the Excel Society, we provide a number of innovative and engaging programs that cater to many people across Alberta. By collaborating with the people in our care and their families/guardians, we are able to provide them with the right level of assistance that focus on three different categories: Housing, Support and Enrichment



We believe everyone needs a safe, comfortable, and practical place to live and call home.  We work with our residents and their care partners and family to identify person-specific housing needs, and then provide a long-term housing solution that best serves the individual in our care.


We believe everyone needs comprehensive care and personal support for a developmental disability or complex mental health diagnosis. We start from the perspective that every person is unique and has their own individual needs and goals, and we work with people to help them achieve their own physical, emotional, and psychological wellness on their terms.


We believe everyone needs to express themselves, create meaning in their lives, and feel connected to their community. We strive every day to make this a reality for people that come to the Excel Society by enabling them to participate in activities that make life rewarding.

Trusted by the Best in Healthcare. 




At the Excel Society, we value collaboration and we work together with our partners to provide exceptional care through meaningful engagement.


Earlier in 2023 we received Accreditation with Exemplary Standards in the QMENTUM Program administered by Accreditation Canada. This review was concluded early in 2023 where we met 97% of standards and clearly demonstrates our commitment to quality, safety, and service excellence.
