Who We Are

Our Story

Founded in 2003 by Omar Lalani and his uncle, Trillium Communities is rooted in family and a deep respect for the elderly. Omar’s goal was to improve seniors’ quality of life and maintain their independence and dignity at every age. The standard was set: all Trillium homes are centrally located with a warm, welcoming and safe atmosphere, a reputation for unparalleled, personalized care and a team passionate about resident-centred care, respect, collaboration and choice.

Trillium Communities




Years Serving Seniors

A Curated Experience

The best approach is a collaborative approach. Our team members foster relationships with each resident and their family, prioritizing their needs and preferences. All of us at Trillium Communities embrace open and honest communication with each other and those we serve.  Our team members live our values and are the reason we are an operator of choice. Steeped in history with unique floor plans, elegant design and happy team members, Trillium Communities really is as unique as you.

Not Just a Place to Call Home…

We believe a Trillium property shouldn’t just feel like home—it is home. Our communities are bespoke, elegant and teeming with life and laughter. They are inviting environments to connect with family and friends. Our team members come alongside our residents so when they’re at work, it feels like home to them too. The needs of folks in Long Term Care are very different from those in our Independent Living homes. We’re privileged to be an employer of choice for professional healthcare workers, nurses and hospitality specialists.

Prioritizing Happiness and Health

Guided by best practices, Trillium Communities provides a comprehensive range of services aimed at supporting residents to live full lives, regardless of age, mobility or health. To deliver the most exceptional standard of care and service, we invest in continual learning opportunities for our team, actively liaise with partner healthcare and hospitality providers and deftly accommodate the evolving needs of our residents and their families through the continuum of aging.
