The Camelot

Our Perspective


The Camelot is ideal for people who want something more intimate in a retirement residence, offering a cozily private community of peers. Among Victoria retirement homes, this is a unique, boutique-style community. You can come and go as you please, with a ready set of companions and friends living in the same building. Set in a quiet residential neighbourhood, people who are more introspective or artsy may find this to be a comfortable way to settle into retirement living.

For all its intimacy and comfort, the Camelot offers the accoutrements you might expect from a larger retirement home. Housekeeping and dishes are taken care of here, care staff is on hand, there’s a full service dining room with table service, and a daily schedule of activities. There’s also a reading room and a landscaped yard with a gazebo, adding to the peaceful moments made possible.

We especially like the suites here, with every apartment featuring a private balcony or patio. Even one-bedroom suites are exceptionally roomy, with kitchens in an open-concept style. It’s all together ideal for people seeking the security of a retirement home in a peaceful setting.

Community’s Perspective

We asked The Camelot to answer the following questions:

Who are you as a community?

Built in 1998, the Camelot is located in the heart of James Bay. We offer a warm comfortable home environment in a quiet location, right downtown by the Inner Harbour. With 34 suites, Camelot offers Boutique Independent Retirement Living with Supportive Services. Rents include Evening Meals Daily, Weekly Housekeeping and Heavy Laundry Services. Heat, Hydro and Gas are also included in rent.  Camelot is a great place to make new friends, enjoy conversations and activities in the common lounge or out on the lovely garden patio.
