The Good Samaritan Society (GSS) and Good Samaritan Canada are leading faith-based, not-for-profit, registered charities in Western Canada that provide quality accommodations, health, and community care services and programs.

With over 70 years of experience providing specialized health and community care services in innovative and caring environments, our operational effectiveness and overarching culture of service and care make us the provider of choice for individuals and their families seeking a supportive place to call home.

Thank you for being part of our Good Samaritan Community, a place where Christian hospitality is extended to all.

At this time of increased need but limited access at care homes, we welcome well wishes for residents and clients of Good Samaritan

  • Where you know and want to send on greetings to a particular Good Samaritan resident, please send them a message directly through our Well Wishes page. You can access this by going to and clicking on Well Wishes at the top of the page.
  • Where you want to send out encouragement to residents and care homes in general, send generic notes to and the local chaplain will share these as possible with residents. You can send in electronic messages or images – specifically welcome are children’s drawings and messages of encouragement.
  • When you are filled with hope, pray!

Visitors and registered volunteers are strictly limited by the health authority to safeguard this very vulnerable population, so we ask that you please do not visit our care homes at this time.

We are so grateful to our Lutheran community. Blessings to you in this season of physical distancing as the Spirit works in creative ways to bind us together in love.
