Dom Lipa
Etobicoke Ontario

The Slovenian Linden Foundation was formed in 1974 among Ontario Slovenians dedicated to its goals. The association's first aim was to supply financing for the construction of a Slovenian senior citizens' home, Dom Lipa, and to subsequently support and maintain the premises. The second aim was to provide accomodation, care, and other support services at the home.
Dom Lipa also provides social and recreational opportunities for Slovenian seniors who reside in the community. Activities such as gardening and craft making are organized. A priest is available for the celebration of Mass and for other needs.
Land was purchased on Neilson Street in Etobicoke, and the construction began in 1985. Community support, hard work, and determination changed a dream to a reality.
