Mont St Joseph Home (MSJ Home) is a 120 bed long term care Home in Prince Albert, centrally located in Saskatchewan servicing the Prince Albert Parkland Health Region (PAPHR) along with referrals from the two northern Saskatchewan health regions.

MSJ Home prides itself on its a holistic approach for all services provided including spiritual care, communal needs and family integration. Mont St Joseph Home benefits from the philosophy of the “Eden Alternative”.

The following excerpt from our history book “Mom lives Here” outlines the beginning of Mont St Joseph Home:

“Father Joseph Abraham Beaulac was pleased. The mail on this June day in 1944 contained a most generous donation of $500 toward the Home for the aged.” Father Beaulac sent a request to the Sisters of Our Lady of the Cross to come help build and run a Home for the aged of the area.”

  • 1944 the Sisters moved to Marcelin to open St Joseph Home and received their first Resident on August 20, 1944.
  • 1956 the Sisters moved to Prince Albert and established Mont St Joseph Home.
  • 1972 a Board of Directors was convened for the Mont St Joseph Home.
  • 1992 the Sisters transferred sponsorship to Prince Albert Diocese and ownership to Mont St Joseph Home Inc.
  • 1994 the Government of Canada, Government of Saskatchewan and Prince Albert  District Health Board announced capital funding for a 120 bed long term care Home.
  • 1997 the new Home opened on 28th Street and affiliated with Prince Albert Parkland Health Region. The City of Prince Albert and the Carlton High School  Board traded land to facilitate this building project. Through a huge community  fundraising project 1.5 million dollars were raised by individuals, local business, corporations and non-profit groups such as Kinsmen Telemiracle.
  • 1999 the Foundation’s Board of Directors was established.
