About Us






In November 1960, Paintearth Lodge was established as an incorporated body under the Municipal District Act and set out to build and operate a lodge facility. The lodge facility began operations in 1963 under the name Paintearth Lodge.


In 1996 the Castor & District Housing Authority was established as a Management Body under the newly revised Alberta Housing Act and took over responsibility for operation of the Paintearth Lodge. In addition to the Lodge, the Authority has taken on responsibility for three seniors self-contained apartment buildings and some family housing units.
