The History of Chrysalis
In 1968, Chrysalis began as a Centennial project under the direction of the University of Alberta and was created by parents and community members who realized that adults with disabilities deserved equal opportunities to contribute to their communities. Chrysalis was one of the first of its kind in the world, an agency especially planned for training adults with developmental disabilities to produce manufactured goods using automated machinery. Through Chrysalis, individuals were offered, for the first time ever, alternatives to staying in school or remaining inactive all day long in their residential settings.
Today, Chrysalis offers personalized services to help thousands of people with disabilities receive training, develop life and vocational skills, find employment, discover volunteer opportunities, and realize a better quality of life.
Our Mission Statement
Chrysalis provides personalized services to assist individuals with disabilities achieve their employment, volunteer and recreation goals.
People with disabilities are accepted by and included in society for their abilities to contribute, and have the same rights and privileges as all citizens.
Who is OverHaul Fitness?
OverHaul Fitness is a Mobile and Online Personal Training company that specializes in weight loss.
What does mobile mean? It means we come to you: we meet you at the closest Public Facility In Edmonton or Sherwood Park (eg. Terwillegar, Kinsmen, Millennium Place, etc.) or we can even meet you are your house or do the odd outside workout when the weather is nice; we have a TRX and a few other pieces of equipment.
What is Online Personal Training? We upload the workouts we’ve created for you, as well as your nutrition program (like a meal plan), to a smartphone app (where you can follow along as you workout and input your reps and weights) and website (where you can print out your workout, meal plan, etc.). We then coach you through your program “from a distance,” and connect via in-app messaging, emails, skype, or phone calls; we even do face-to-face meetings for local clients (Edmonton and surrounding area).
We are big believers in practicality, we believe in coaching our clients to make small practical changes that have large, long lasting and impactful results. We also value educating our clients so that we can empower them and provide them with the necessary information to become independent.
We also work closely with Andrea Hardy, RD, from Ignite Nutrition, which allows us to provide the greatest level of expertise for weight loss. Further, it allows us to broaden the clientele that we can work with while remaining in the scope of our practice; with Andrea’s help we are able to effectively help Diabetics, Crohns, Gluten & Lactose intolerances, etc. Something to note: all services done with our Dietitian can be claimed with your health benefits.

A private corporation based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Sentinel Self-Storage is proud to be the largest 100% Canadian-owned mini storage facility in the country.
The first Sentinel Self-Storage location opened in Edmonton in 1975. The idea was conceived after the owners saw similar structures in the United States and realized there was a need for public storage facilities in Canada.
The evolution of self-storage in Alberta is quite interesting. City planners insisted that the first Edmonton facility was to be erected in an industrial area on the outskirts of the city because of its “high risk” potential.
After many years and focused lobbying efforts, planners came to realize that these first generation mini storage facilities (long rows of garages) posed no threat to the community and, in fact, fulfilled a valuable need. They were then allowed in close proximity to residential areas.
Over 40 Years Of Satisfied Self-Storage Customers In Canada
Security, convenience, and access – these are the words that define Sentinel Self-Storage and that drive our growth and success. Thanks to our commitment and dedication to customer satisfaction, Sentinel has become a leader in self-storage. Our customers-first attitude has allowed us to expand to 23 locations across Canada, including Edmonton, Calgary, Montreal, Vancouver and Fort McMurray.
With new advances in technology, our company continues to grow and adapt to provide you with the best service – and consequently, the best experience – possible. Stop by one of our many locations to see first hand what Sentinel Storage can offer.
Sentinel is always looking for new acquisitions. Are you a fellow self-storage owner interested in selling your facility or property? Contact Karen Bodoano, Sentinel Operations Manager at email@example.com

At the Foundation, we follow one main philosophy — to help children get ready for life through public education. But what does that really mean?
Before they even start Kindergarten, children begin learning. Research tells us that 75 per cent of brain growth occurs before age six. When children live in vulnerable circumstances without opportunities for healthy growth, their future success becomes threatened. So what can be done?
That’s where we come in.
At Edmonton Public Schools, the unwavering belief that all children should leave the public education system with the competencies needed to prepare them for a lifetime of success guides our work.
The Foundation was launched February 10, 2010, for two main purposes: to spread the word about the great things happening in the public education system and to support Edmonton Public Schools across Edmonton. We do this by offering opportunities for improved learning through financial, in-kind and human resource contributions.
So what we really do here is raise friends and funds to support early learning intervention and student success. Research shows children develop the foundation for strong communication skills, literacy, social competence, numeracy, adaptability and physical health as early as age three.
We know investing in children today means investing in their future, our communities and our society.
As a two-person operation, we currently support two main programs: Early Learning and Full-Day Kindergarten. We provide support to schools with students considered Edmonton’s most socially vulnerable citizens. Foundation staff: Director Tracy Poulin and Fund Development Associate Alva Shewchuk.
We’re ready for you! We want to help you get involved in whatever way works best for you. Giving comes in all forms: financial contributions, in-kind donations and time. Whatever you choose to give, we are more than happy to receive.
With your support, socially vulnerable children will have access to a full-day of learning in a Kindergarten classroom. Here’s how you can help!
-Make a financial contribution
100 per cent of all contributions go directly into a full-day Kindergarten program.
Donations of $25 or more are eligible for an official donation receipt.
Contact us to make a contribution via cheque or cash.
-Make an in-kind donation
Our schools are in need of resources and items that can enrich the learning environment. Contact us if you have books, mittens and toques, educational supplies, furniture, etc. to donate.
-Give us with your time
We are always looking for new Foundation friends. Contact us if you’d like to:
