Meet Our Team

The Backbone of The Edward Experience

A premier residence of this calibre needs a premier team. In developing The Edward, we started with a superb central location, then engaged architects and consultants with experience in retirement living. Most importantly, we talked with our prospective residents, listening to their preferences and advice.

The result? Every member of The Edward team is trained to deliver caring, attentive, professional service that will surpass your expectations.

General Manager,
Alisa Audia

Alisa started her career working with seniors over 25 years ago when she completed the Gerontology degree program at The University of Guelph. After graduating, Alisa worked in long-term care for seven years as a Recreation Manager. She then transitioned to the retirement industry and was the National Lifestyle Director for a company that offered 5-star resort-style retirement living in Alberta and Quebec. Since then, Alisa has gained experience in the private club industry, hospitality, interior design and real estate development.

Her kind and warm nature, and positive upbeat vibe, made her the perfect fit for The Edward. Alisa’s values align with those of The Edward – she exemplifies integrity, respect and compassion. Her varied background provides the perfect combination of experience and knowledge. There is no doubt that Alisa will create a vibrant and one of a kind community at The Edward.

When not at work, Alisa is at her country home spending time with family. She prefers to live a simple life and spends as much time as possible outside. Alisa likes to dabble in interior design and always has a renovation project on the go.

Currently, Alisa is working away on manifesting The Edward vision and hiring an exceptional team for our fall 2020 opening. Reach out if you would like to be part of The Edward team, or if you have suggestions regarding what type of services and programs you would like to see offered.

Section23 Developments

Section23 Developments is a diversified collective specializing in architecture, land development and housing with a track record spanning more than three decades. Our roots, however, go back to 1923 with the establishment of Ollerenshaw Ranch in what is now southeast Calgary. Founded on the Ollerenshaw family legacy of community building, we are driven to develop differently, always responding the land, our heritage, and the value of good design in creating environments that connect generations.

At The Edward, we are setting a new standard for independent retirement living in Alberta, creating a vital addition to the South Calgary neighbourhood and creating a community where residents can live active, enriched and connected lives.

New Coast Lifestyles

The Edward will be professionally managed, on behalf of Section23 Developments, by Vancouver‐based New Coast Lifestyles (NCL).

NCL is a leading provider of progressive, club‐style retirement communities with several decades of experience in seniors living property management. NCL’s club‐style communities offer an impressive combination of exciting amenities, engaging activities, and outstanding hospitality.

NCL was hand‐picked by Section23 Developments to ensure the resident experience is managed with personal attention for discerning clients, where the operator is focused on a local approach. This is in contrast to large national organizations with operations spanning the country. In these facilities, management decisions are often made outside of the local market and applied across all of their residences instead of delivering a highly contextual approach in each residence. NCL’s professional team is dedicated to residents at The Edward, delivering the singular best in attentive service, comfort, and convenience in a resort‐style environment designed to exceed every expectation.
