Our Family & History

Jason and Joseph Shannon

Parkland is a family-owned business whose unparalleled service excellence is inspired by community pride and Maritime hospitality. This passion began with our Founder, Joseph Shannon, who was inspired to give back to the community by purchasing a nursing home in his home town of Sydney, N.S., in order to improve local seniors’ living options and ensure continued employment for its workers. This placed the Shannon family on a path of creating best-in-class services and accommodations beginning in their own community and growing across Canada. Mr. Shannon’s vision lives on within the company and reflects its humble roots and continued dedication to community.

Parkland locations in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Ontario offer exceptional living: beautiful surroundings, delicious meals, friendly neighbours and attentive team members with none of the demanding responsibilities of home ownership. Thanks to dedicated, professional teams, our communities offer a range of services and lifestyle options to help each resident achieve their goals. And, because resident wellness is our top priority, residents are included in decisions impacting their care and our communities are designed to create safe places they are proud to call home.

Live your best life at Parkland.
